    But I'm not auctioning, renting or selling something that doesn't belong to me to begin with. I'm auctioning "when I'm going to move my car out of the spot I got into first."

    Same principle as asking someone to stand in for you on a ticket line. Or waving someone into your parking spot at the shopping mall.

    no you are auction a spot. public parking is first come first serve.
    yea and people get ticked at people who hold places in line for others that aren't there. in fact sometime they are asked to go to the back of the line.

    waving someone into your parking space is a first come first serve.

    the city has a right stop people from auctioning and selling items that don't belong to them. i agree with the city.

    The city can enforce whatever they choose. And I'll most certainly agree with the city when they start issuing citations.

    I believe, though, that my principle is correct. I'd be willing to argue it in front of a jury.

    The principle of what, selling public property for private profit?

    I'll get a few friends and occupy every space, that will be our 'job'. We'll be small-time career politicians, a life on taxpayer dollars. We'll start bidding wars between groups and own the parking lot with the iron fist of a violent gang. It will be our turf, who cares who paid for it, and parking there will cost.

    That principle?

    Why is yoir behavior not asswipery?

    And who goes to jail.for getting assaulted?

    And why aren't you the one getting punched for selling something you couldn't deliver?

    And if youre in a timed spot, YOU will get the cops ire.

    And i can film you putting more money in the meter if you try that.

    I just thought of a comparison. In the City of Chicago, residents are allowed to put lawn chairs, etc., in their snow-shoveled-out parking spaces in front of their home. Move the lawn chairs at your peril. Chicago doesn't have assigned parking. Those spaces are all public parking, yet the city doesn't object. Why is this "saving" any different? Chicago might have a hard time enforcing a ban on such a business because of this precedent. 'Course we like to take the city to court for all sorts of reasons.

    I realize it's over the top, but it does make one wonder, "Why not?"

    Is your driveway public space?
