The Robin Hoods of Keene, New Hampshire, have saved residents over $80,000 in parking fines.
The Robin Hoods place a coin into expired parking meters before the “parking enforcers” get there and leave a card notifying the car’s owner that they have been “saved from the king’s tariffs” and encouraging them to “pay it forward”. The Merry Men and Women can usually be seen walking directly in front of the “parking enforcer” and feeding the meters before they can be checked. Motorists who could not be saved in time receive a flyer that discusses fighting parking tickets. That flyer is posted here, and is a valuable resource for anyone with a ticket.
