Parked illegally in Duluth? Meter expired? No sweat! You might receive a "ticket" like this one, which was tucked gently under an out-of-state friend's windshield:

We are glad you have found time to visit Duluth. We hope you will enjoy your stay here and come again—and often.

As you are a guest you are NOT receiving a parking ticket even though the meter tag shows red.

You are now in Northeastern Minnesota where hospitality is a fact and friendliness a way of life.

Use our streets, patronize our merchants, enjoy our fine water, dine at our restaurants, drive safely and spend the night with us. Use our parking meters and — if you want any information or assistance, ask any police officer or call Police Communications, "911".

Gary L. Doty, Mayor
City of Duluth

P.S. We'd like to have you save this "ticket" as a souvenir and show it to your friends. Thanks for coming!
