Ann Arbor has a reputation for being aggressive about ticketing and towing cars that are parked illegally on city streets.
The city began enforcing regular football parking rules during the U-M spring game for the first time in April 2010. But after receiving strong backlash for failing to give proper notice about the enforcement, the city agreed to void 95 tickets it had issued to football fans and other motorists.
City officials decided then they would do a better job of notifying the public about the parking restrictions for the spring game in future years.
