In a snow emergency, residents in Boston clear their parking spaces and reserve them with lawn furniture.
I hate to say it, but the residents in Boston have it over the public officials in Hollywood. Close call,but they do. LOL!
This happens in Chicago all the time.
The city hall tyrants of Los Angeles at work. Hundreds of irate citizens all with exactly the same story are far more believable than the idiots at City Hall.
Their creativity never ceases.
IT'S THE MONEY, SUCKAH !!!!
CHA --- CHING !!!
That says it all. They come around & put up temporary cardboard No Parking signs & then start to tow the cars that are parked on the street. It happens all the time & is disgusting. Any time they want to do tree trimming or construction, they just slap up signs & tow. Especially around Westwood. You have to call around to find out which lot has your car & then pay impound & towing charges. If you are out of town, you may not know for a couple of days that your car has been towed.
While I was in college my car was towed & once they dented it, but I had no way to prove the dent wasn't there before.
I never get over it.
The names of the people that hold various offices.
I was once arrested by officer Lawless.
I swear it's true ... that was his name.
I'll never forget it.
Here's another take on this story. I worked as a 911 dispatcher in a busy university town. On game day, most of our calls were from businesses with their parking lots full of people NOT shopping in their stores, from citizens who couldn't park in front of their houses, get into their garages, get through their alley, etc. When 'special events' are being held, SOME people choose to park their cars in the dumbest places. And then they have the 'balls' to complain about being towed. The ones that ticked me off the most were elderly people who had clearly designated handicapped places in front of their homes and some big rig would park in there. How nice for the elderly person in a wheelchair or on oxygen having to try and get home.
But by and large, most people follow the rules and try not to park illegally. Thank God for them.
You need a change of government.
