To the editor:

After reading the article “He’s got that right, but they have it wrong”,  I cannot understand why business owners and employees think it’s a good idea to park in front of their place of business.  It seems that this is a national trend.  If parking meters are downtown they are the first to blame and then the tickets.  No one ever complains about parking at a ball game or the state fair and so on but, they can complain about a ridiculous issue such as a parking meter or a parking ticket.

  1. Good point concerning on street parking with the business owners and employees taking up the prime space, but I think you need to work a state fair or event parking for a ball game. People will always complain about parking no matter how close, how cheap or their destination.
