A Pennsylvania borough is putting the brakes on a disgruntled handyman’s attempt at paying his $25 parking fine with 50 rolls of pennies.
Chambersburg officials told Justin Greene his passive-aggressive payment of 2,500 pennies wasn’t allowed under a federal rule designating the copper coins as small change — not tender for debts greater than 25 cents.
Greene tells Wednesday’s Chambersburg Public Opinion (http://bit.ly/1KhEZEX ) that he paid the fine with pennies because he felt the fine was out of line and high for simply parking on the wrong side of the street for just 10 minutes.
Greene was told that he could pay the fine in dimes or quarters, just not pennies.
Green stated that he has not paid the fine yet and is still thinking of ways to inconvenience the borough.
