Huntsville - A Huntsville man is issued close to 100 parking tickets totaling nearly $19,000. The fines stem from his vanity license plate. The tickets come from the city of Birmingham after police say the man improperly parked all over their city. There's just one problem, Birmingham is demanding the cash from the wrong guy. Does it add up?

WHNT NEWS 19 talked exclusively with Scottie Roberson's.

Scottie Roberson lives in Huntsville. He's a business owner and musician. He is also a financial burden to the city of Birmingham.

"I'm that guy. It started about a year and a half ago. They kept sending me tickets because of the tag here," said Scottie Roberson.

Roberson's vanity plate features XXXXXXX which is a tribute to his love of racing.

The grouping of letters is exactly what police in Birmingham use when they can't get license plate information while filling out a parking ticket.

Roberson says he hasn't driven in Birmingham in over five years and says he's gotten plenty of tickets for improper parking in that city. The fines total $19,000.

"I talked to everyone from the meter maid, the Birmingham Mayor's Office, and no one was willing to do anything about it," added Roberson.

Roberson says he has never gotten a ticket he's deserved. He's also finding it hard to get an answer

"I got everything from, I don't know why you are worried about it because we don't have the resources to arrest you any way, to a a gentleman whose name I won't mention, that told me I would be arrested on site," added Roberson.

The father of two says he knows the folks in Birmingham are working on this problem. He says it's just not happening fast enough.

"They're making it out like it is not a big deal, but it is a big deal. it's been going on for a year and a half. it's not like they don't know about it. they've been told, and told, and told."

Roberson showed WHNT NEWS 19 just some of the tickets issued to him. He says he's received twice as many more. Together, they total close to $19,000. He says all of them are a waste of taxpayer's money and time.

"The problem I have with it is, here's $19,000 worth of revenue Birmingham could have, and now they are not going to get it because they have no idea who deserves these tickets," added Roberson.

Roberson says he carries the tickets in his car in case there's a need for show and tell.

He knows that may be a lost cause.

"The officers are not going to know the story. I'm going to jail," added Roberson.

Roberson says, that is his worst fear.

Scottie Roberson told WHNT NEWS 19 he has no intention of paying Birmingham the $19,000 the city say he owes.

Birmingham's traffic engineer says the city may change the system to keep Roberson from receiving more tickets. He says, "maybe we just need to leave that part blank altogether."

your job that you like?
Assuming that you have one and like any aspect of it or is it just a paycheck?
I like what i do very much, and i'm not happy doing anything else...
i sure would like more money but other than that i like it because i can kinda feel creative..
i've always liked putting together puzzles and i remember many happy hours with my dad putting together models...
cars,rockets and such...not cheap models, the ones that you actually have to glue and paint and apply water decals to..
soldering reminds me of that...i take a raw pcb **printed circuit board** and put the parts on and when i'm done i can look at it
and say i did that...

KO, Yoken, Sage, Sii and I went to see this movie last night...Thanx Sii....
It made me angry, sad, horrified and thoughtful...It was filmed in a documentary style at first then turned into a movie...and also I feel a comment on how we treat each other and others that are different than us..And,well, duh, I know that was the point...But it did work..You do have mixed feelings throughout the movie about the various characters.
There's a lot I could say about how i felt towards various characters and how those thoughts changed as the movie progressed but I haven't really thought them out..
Just wanted to say that this movie was very good on many different levels and I do recommend seeing it...I don't think there is anyway to look at it as just a movie..

Dr's Thoughts on Healthcare Reform

The American Medical Association has weighed in on the new national healthcare package.

The Allergists voted to scratch it, but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.  The Gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve.

The Obstetricians felt they were all laboring under a misconception. Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted.  
 
Pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!" while the Pediatricians said, 'Oh, Grow up!'

The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the Radiologists could see right through it. Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing. The Internists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow, and the Plastic Surgeons said, "This puts a whole new face on the matter.."
 
The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea. The Anesthesiologists thought the whole idea was a gas, and the Cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no.
 
In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the assholes in Washington.

Just for shits and giggles i decided to find the largest,cheapest t-shirt i could possibly find....
i wear big t-shirts as nightshirts and i like em big and roomy....
well, i got a shirt that was 11.00 including shipping...and it's a size 10x....anything bigger than that was very expensive...
12x t-shirts go for about 80.00....
this thing is huge....it's plain white so i'm going to dye some interesting color and get some kinda iron on transfer for it....
the biggest shirt i ever found in a local store was a 6x...
now, onto my next bizarre hunt....any suggestions?
