Thought I'd share my experience since I had no idea this could happen and others should take note to avoid an unpleasant surprise. Parked in a 2 hour restricted area this morning. Returned to the car after 1.5 hours and drove to my local gym. After leaving the gym, I had to briefly return to my prior location. I parked on the same street but opposite side of the street and left the car. After returning 30 mins later I had a parking ticket waiting for me! For violating the 2 hour maximum time limit. WTF? Turns out gone are the days of chalking the wheels. The officers now have automated cameras that log your license plate. The system cannot differentiate between a car that has been moved and then returns later in the day. Even if you park on the opposite side of the street on an entirely separate block. To be on the safe side, you should never return to within 0.1 miles of where you previously parked in the same day. Just beware that this can happen because I sure had no idea.
