Say What?!: Shippensburg Man’s Revenge Attempt by Paying for Parking Ticket in Pennies Rejected

PenniesCHAMBERSBURG, Pa. (EYT) – A Shippensburg man didn’t get away with trying to get revenge for a parking ticket by paying in pennies, but remains undaunted in his attempts “to inconvenience them.”

Justin Greene got angry after he received a $25 ticket for parking on the wrong side of a Chambersburg street and set out to “get back at someone” by trying to pay with 2,500 pennies, an attempt the borough rejected by citing federal regulations on the use of pennies as payment for large debts.

Greene is undeterred, telling a local newspaper he’s “trying to think of an alternative way to inconvenience them.”

Chambersburg Borough Manager Jeffrey Stonehill disagrees with these attempts, saying in a letter Greene “admitted to illegally parking the wrong way on a street” and “tormenting a borough cashier rather than pleading not guilty to the offense in a court of law, which is his right, is not an appropriate protest.”
