La Crosse Police Issue "Courtesy" Parking Tickets

 La Crosse police are trying to be friendly to visitors of this western Wisconsin city during the height of fall tourism. Lt. Pat Hogan says the department is issuing visitor-friendly
"courtesy" parking tickets to first-time, overtime parking violators.

Mayor Matt Harter says the city can help downtown businesses by giving
first-timers a break, along with providing as much parking as possible
by enforcing existing rules.

Since Oct. 4, community service employees have written 454 warnings, or
about 18 a day. Of those, 306 were in downtown La Crosse.Previous violators still have to pay a $12 fine, after a $4 increase approved in March.

Well, Duh — I have been railing about this solution for years. It solves all PR problems and follows the rules as well.
