Drat parking meters

Had a family meeting in Berkeley this morning. Wowee!! I found a parking space. Tried to feed the meter, but it took my money and flashed "FAILURE! Out of Service"
I think it had been flashing even before I had put any money in. Well, I had tried to feed the meter.

Came back from meeting and found a @!*@!@ parking ticket on the windshield.
Parking meter was now flashing "METER EXPIRED"

Dogoneit! It's a $30 ticket. I'm thinking about filing an administrative claim against it. I don't know if it's going to get me anywhere, but it's the principle of the thing.
