Judy and Ed Craine kept their automobile parked on the driveway in front of their San Francisco home for decades before they started receiving fines.
- According to San Francisco officials say the fine was based on decades-old city code.
- They were given a $1,542 fine for parking on their own property, and if they didn't remove the car off the carpad, they would have to pay $250 every day.
- The couple told KGO-TV that the area has been used as a parking space ever since the 1910 construction of the house.
- The planning department informed the couple that the city would be willing to overlook the punishment if they could show that the lot had previously been utilized for parking.
- The Craines showed the planning department of a photo from 34 years ago, but according to officials the photo wasn't old enough.
