$15 is would have been more reasonable, but do you really think you have a chance of fighting it? no.

to be honest, I have never heard of street sweeping tickets around here. the silly machine just drives around cars on the street. maybe we have more wind here?

Good luck fighting it. My dad got one in Cleveland 3 years back. He tried to argue with the court but they told him that there were signs all along the street that notified about the sweeping, and if he didn't see them it wasn't their problem. He coughed up the $40 for it.
