Wow! An article that Defends Parking Enforcement


Wow! An article that Defends Parking Enforcement

Yep…Here it is. Parking Enforcement is your Friend. You won’t see that headline very often. In this town in Connecticut, if the time limit wasn’t enforced, commuters on the nearby rail line to New York would hog all the free spaces, and if they didn’t, employees of the local stores would. So they ticket, and sometimes shoppers get swept up in the same net.

I just loved this line:

One of the biggest problems with Main and Elm is that employees want to park there for the very obvious reason is that it’s free,” Miller said. “When streets are patrolled it keeps turnover going. Miller said she considers shoppers who receive tickets “collateral damage.”

Collateral damage, indeed.

Oh, I would disregard the part about their new ticket writing vendor. They acknowledge that they are “getting used” to the new technology, having moved from a pencil to the most modern there is. I’m sure when it settles in, they will find it “just right.”

Imagine, a reporter that took the time to understand the problem, and then write fairly about it. My guess is that there is no room at the New York Times for this young woman. Unbiased reporting isn’t stressed at most of the main stream media.
