Can you trust a parking meter?

...or the rapacious politicians who use them to get into your wallets?

The meter reads "10," and when he inserts the nickel it goes up to "14."
After inserting a dime, it goes up to "23."
after inserting a quarter, it goes up to "31."

14-10=4; 5 cents divided by 4 minutes equals 1.25 cents per minute.
23-14=9; 10 cents divided by 9 minutes equals 1.11 cents per minute.
31-23=8; 25 cents divided by 8 minutes equals 3.12 cents per minute.

Qualls' parking plan doesn't add up either. Sign the parking petition today.
