North Dakota battles parking meter

North Dakota reconsiders 70-year ban on parking meters
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- When an angry farmer was ticketed for not feeding a parking meter, he launched a one-man crusade that made North Dakota the nation's only state that bans the meters on all public streets.
Now the governor is quietly trying to end the nearly 70-year ban in hopes of revitalizing downtowns, and the farmer's granddaughter is fighting to uphold her family's legacy.
