Homeowners Hoping For Refunds After Parking Fines

Homeowners Hoping For Refunds After Parking Fines

Posted: Updated:
Mobile, AL - The aptly named Mercedes has a lot of cars in her yard on game day.  Most homeowners escaped $138 fines.  Officials at the stadium say--between tailgating and tents there were only about 1000 parking spots inside the stadium lot for Senior Bowl.

Depending on size some homeowners report earning $200 to $900 during a big event like the Senior Bowl or USA game day.  After complaining to the Mobile City Council, Mobile's Mayor promised to correct the problem.

That's absurd, it's been going on for years and years, not knowing how it came about but we are on it,” says Sandy Stimpson.  Jerrylyn London was fined.  She’s glad to get the support from city officials and calls the fine discriminatory.

Why after all these years are we being faced with a business license,’ says London.  Councilman Fred Richardson suggested the tickets targeted African American homes.

“All African Americans so it seems to me whoever's doing the ticketing was picking and choosing who they were writing tickets to,” says Richardson.
