I was looking at apts in downtown and had my car at a parking meter. I moved within the 2 hours and drove around the area looking for a place to park near 16th. After driving around for 10 mins or more, I couldn't find anything so I went back to the apartment building and lo and behold my parking space was still there. I parked there again, put 2 hours on the meter and left. I came back and had a ticket bc they said I didn't more within x amount of yards. But I did. I am assuming they marked my tire and when I came back they saw the mark on the tire from the original spot but I don't really know. I just know there is really no way for me to prove I did indeed leave and I am concerned about how to prevent this from happening again. Look for a tire mark and remove it somehow?

I believe they scan the license plate when they roll by the cars. It’s like a chalk mark, but a bit more high tech. The system alerts them to a car that has been parked in a spot too long. I suppose you could fight it and say you left and drove around the block. They have burden of proof against them.

Consider a dashcam in your car. Primary reason I have it is for documentation in the event of an accident and conflicting sories, but having a time-stamped video of you coming and going from the spot is all the evidence you'd need.
