Anyone can put money in a parking meter for someone else, but this activity, called re-metering, is illegal in some cities. An enterprising type of individual arose some years back and made a business of sorts by feeding the meters of people whose time had expired, or nearly so. This person would then leave a self-addressed envelope on the vehicle asking for compensation which, obviously, was voluntary. The individual who was (possibly or probably) saved from getting a parking ticket might be inclined to put a few bucks in the envelope and post it. That, after all, was a return of the favor, and cheaper (by far) than having to pay a parking citation. City fathers in some of the urban areas where this was happening decided that this activity, re-metering, was costing the city because it cut into the revenues generated by issuing parking citations. Local ordinances sprang up here and there as other cities joined the move to protect the income being generated by parking enforcement activities.

Many people like to take the parking meters and put them somewhere else. This way when someone goes to park there they can retrieve the money.

You don't, because that would be illegal.

That seems likely. It's safer to not risk it and lose money/get a fine

Well for instance a parking meter can accept money and give you a ticket or show a time.

Please put money in the parking meter. Lovely Rita, the meter maid, gave Polythene Pam a ticket when she came in through the bathroom window! Where would we put the meter?

Someone would find out how much money someone owes in unpaid parking tickets from 5 years ago by contacting the parking enforcement agency in each state. Having unpaid parking tickets can potentially mean that someone's car can be impounded.

Every country that needs money developed their own. This solved money issues within that country but created issues with everyone elses money. Exchange Rates allow your money to be changed to someones elses money at an agreed rate. To everyone in their country everyone elses money is foreign money. On some continents they people who live there have agreed on a common currency so there are fewer foreign money around than there used to be

No money is earned on free parking according to the rules. You can play by "house rules" made by yourself where you can earn money on free parking. But in the official rules, you don't get anything on free parking.

Define greedy. I hear the one called greedy who wishes to keep more of his own money but never would the term greedy be bestowed upon one who demands more of someone elses money.

I would say yes because you are stealing someone elses in real life money. Although I highly doubt they will sue you over $13 or so.

There are many ways. They include the following: -lottery -rich parents -illegal ways (drugs dealing) -working hard for someone elses company, etc.

No, that would be a crime, do not do it. If the cheque is not made out to you the money is not intended for you and if you have received the cheque by mistake or found it, you should take it to the police or to the bank and hand it in.

You should share your remortgage interest rates. Sharing your remortgages decreases the pressure on your payments. You pay less and save more money that way.

There are many reasons. It all depends on what crime. One is murder: it could be from jealousy or they dont like the way their husband or boyfriend treat them. Two Robbery: they cant provide for the family so they feel the need to rob stores of money or valuable items to get money. Three Kidnapping: they can not have their own children so they get angry and kidnap other peoples children. Or they are jealous of someone elses family and want to be the mother of someone elses child and have their husband.

because that way they can make a greater amount of money if people only stay for a short time
