gooogled a message before I had to spend few days in Mountain View, all say it's basically free, even in downtown. yet I managed to get a ticket, if I understand correctly, for exceeding allowed free time, then it rained so when I went to pay for it they said it's damanaged and can't be processed. So the question is what am I to do about it? Will you compensate? I'd say I agree to compensate the fine itself but not all extra payments you may be up to because you didn't pay it on time. And you've been two days, there, right? On what day did it happen? Monday i.e. first? you had then enough time to pay it I was busy with the installation the next day
