"PARKING TICKETS? NOT IN AUGUST" Paris Favorite Tip by thinking

Favorite thing: This is a Paris parking ticket.
You’ll have a hard time getting one in August, when parking is free- unless you park in a crosswalk (the cardinal sin) in the middle of town.
I was about to pay this one, left over from early July, when I noticed it was not for my own car! Someone had slipped it under my windshield-wiper, hoping I’d pay it without looking.
The way you pay the ticket is to buy a timbre fiscal at a tabac. They look like my next photo.
You stick the large section of the stamp on the parking ticket and mail it off to the Trésor public in Rennes. The small part goes on the second page of the ticket, which you keep as proof that you paid.
To pay for parking in Paris, you buy a parking card at a tabac.
They look a bit like telephone cards.
I sometime keep the old Paris ones, as they are very lovely.
