A Ticket Time of Day

What time of day are you more likely to get a UGA parking ticket? I finally got around to knocking out the specific times. It wasn't as easy as you might think. My Excel skills are slipping. So here we go, the top times of the day when tickets are written:
  1. 8:30 a.m.
  2. 9:40 a.m.
  3. 10:36 a.m. (see a trend here?)
  4. 2:10 p.m. (wait, what?)
  5. 9:50 a.m.
  6. 9:46 a.m.
  7. 2:07 p.m.
  8. 9:45 a.m.
  9. 10:14 a.m.
  10. 9:41 a.m.
As you can see above, 8 of 10 are morning times. If we flip this, the least likely times to get tickets are, obviously, evenings or very early in the mornings. There are way too many 1-ticket-written times to list here. However ... there was one ticket written at 1:07 a.m.  That's an early ticket, written (of course) in the Ramsey lot.

Fun Fact: A silver Tesla got three parking tickets, all bunched together (9/15, 9/22, and 9/28). But in three different lots (Physics, Brooks, and Lower Brooks). I can only assume that third ticket got the overindulged Tesla owner's attention.

Fun Fact II: A gray Maserati got two tickets, one at Ramsey Center and another nearby at East Village. Not nearly enough, to me, for anyone driving a Maserati.

Fun Fact III: The most ticketed vehicle at UGA is a Toyota, followed by Honda, Ford, and Nissan. This, of course, merely reflects how many staff, faculty, and students drive those popular brands. Black cars got the most tickets, pink (yes, pink) the fewest (three the entire academic year, and yes in all three cases it appears to be the same pink scooter).
