I think this is the type of article about parking enforcement that brings good PR to the industry. Seems like the officer knows her job, is fair, and the city is much more fair than I would be in issuing tickets.
It doesn’t make fun of anyone, parker or enforcement officer, and shows the human side of parking control. Kudus to Tom Howard and the Billings Gazette, and to Parking Officer Gail Sweatt. We need more positive stories like this one.
Of course, I would completely change the policy in Billings and give tickets on the first offense, boot and tow more often, and crack down on these criminals, but that’s just me, and my big city attitude.
