Harrison parking laws

Does anyone have any issues with the fact that you cannot park in front of your own house for more than 72 hours without moving your car? What about the elderly that can safely drive and just can't get out every day? I know someone who has recently been ticketed $75.00 each for having 2 cars parked in front of their house that they have owned for almost 40 years. They pay their property taxes, they keep the registration and insurance up on the vehicles, they live on a dead-end street with only 4 houses on it. Yet, the city officials have decided to fine the owner of the home, even though there has never been a lack of parking spaces for anyone on the street. The guy who was ticketed is in his 70's and is on a fixed income. He was not given a written or a verbal warning, they came by early in the A.M.(around 4:30 they originally stated in harrison kangaroo court). They put pennies on the vehicle's tires and came back 3 days later to see if they were still there. Harrison kangaroo court decided not to hear anything he had to say about anything and they told him it didn't matter what he had to say, that he was still getting a fine. He appealed to hamilton county court and the officer then stated that he wasn't there at 4:30 A.M. to apply the pennies (even though he testified to kangaroo court in harrison that he was there at 4:30) and that his shift didn't normally start until 7 A.M. The home owner was not able to afford an attorney to defend himself, and was not able to get a public defender because of it only being a misdemeanor. He still ended up having to pay for one of the tickets and court costs, which did save him about $30 overall, but he still had to pay $127.00 in fines and court costs. OVER PARKING IN FRONT OF HIS HOUSE!!! THAT HE OWNS (it's paid off), THAT HE PAYS TAXES ON, NOT TO MENTION HIS FIXED-LIMITED INCOME AND MEDICAL BILLS!!! If you ask me, the $hitty of harrison needs to focus on other things with the money they spend instead of bullying the elderly that pay their salary through local taxes and property taxes!
