    Default Breastfeeding Mom in London gets a parking ticket.

    Breastfeeding mom gets parking ticket | The London Free Press

    I honestly have no problem with them getting a parking ticket. They were parked, planning to stay in that spot, saw Parking Enforcement coming, knew that they didn't feed the meter.... and they're upset? I'm sorry but I can completely understand why the Mom needed to remain in the car with it on, but why didn't the Dad get out and pay the meter once they stopped? It says that they were there several minutes. Kind of their own fault.

    I agree! There is no law that says a breastfeeding mother gets free parking. Someone's trying to push it too far.

    Ya, I don't get it. If her husband was with her he could have fed the meter. I think this has nothing to do with breastfeeding.

    I totally agree - if she was alone in the van, I'm pretty sure that there would have been no ticket... the officer would have waited to see if she paid. Dad should have just fed the meter and all would have been fine... I wonder if they were thinking that by not paying until after they were ready to leave the van they could save a nickle or two.

    copied from article

    Then the officers motioned to the meter, asking if they’d paid. Jeff Marques jumped out of the van.

    “I said, ‘My wife is breastfeeding right now and then we’re going to the park,’ ” he recalled. “He could’ve just waited to make sure we got out and paid.”
    he should have paid then and there. Its beyond stupid that they went to media they are making themselves look absolutely silly over this
