Bad PR in Dallas


Bad PR in Dallas

I rail constantly about Public Relations and Parking and the City of Dallas (TX) goes out and forgets anyway.  They instituted a resident’s only parking policy for certain hours in a area of town and neglected to tell anyone. Read about it Here.

The result was a bunch of pissed off citizens. Why not the following:

1. Promote the changes in the local press for a month prior to the event.
2. Pass out handbills in the area and perhaps put up temporary signs telling people that the change is coming.
3. Give warnings for the first couple of months so people will be aware of the new rules.

No one will be upset, everyone will be happy, and all will be right with the world.

Simply starting a new program and issuing tickets is not on impertinent, its impolite and frankly rude.
