A warm welcome @ LAX Tom Bradley Int'l - God bless America!

I've traveled to and through several different countries and airports around the world, but something like in LA never happened to me before in any other country!

Once I arrived at Tom Bradley International Airport Los Angeles (my 3rd time) and a good friend of mine was kind enough to pick me. As a non-US citizen, probably like 60-70% of all other arriving passengers @ the Tom Bradley Int'l terminal, I wasn't familiar with the exact designated areas where it was allowed to stop and pick up passengers who are not waiting for rental busses or taxis…  I just waited somewhere without looking at the curbcolor. (I know now that this was a major mistake!!!)

Anyway, my friend pulled into the arrival pick-up lane (left of the double lane) and drove slowly along looking for me. I saw him , waved him and before he could look for a parking spot in this slow moving traffic, I had already thrown my suitcase in the back of his Pickup truck and jumped in. WHAT A HORRIBLE MISTAKE!!!!
A green dressed airport traffic guard or security man (it doesn't really matter, because to me he looked like a policeman anyway) blocked the car by standing in front of the truck and wrote a ticket!!!!

I couldn't believe it!

I mean, my friend hasn't even parked there or even stopped the car longer then the slow moving traffic was moving anyway!


All my efforts to talk to this guy were without success!
My friend was just laughing and said: "WELCOME TO AMERICA!"

Well, I paid the 70$ fine (I insisted) and really felt angry. I've never been ripped of like that (officially or by criminals) in any other airport in the world!

God bless America!
