This pisses me off. The limo driver comes up. Parks in 2 spots. Doesn't bother to pay the parking meter (of course he can't because it's after 3:30 and because of the heavy "rush hour" traffic, the city won't let you park there and therefore you cannot pay the parking meter) he walked away without looking at the parking kiosk. He arrived back in time to attempt to talk his way out of the ticket but he failed. I hope he got twice the amount.

Yup. In the city's drive to keep the streets clear for "rush hour" traffic, this tow truck took 5 minutes of blocking all 3 lanes to tow a car yesterday. The owner came running out as I buzzed by on my scooter. There's no stopping the tow truck though.

In the brilliance of the city's policy of keeping Water Street open for "rush hour" traffic (that is non existent) the meter readers like to slowly meander down the street, doling out tickets. This one took 20 minutes handing out tickets and blocking the 2nd of the 3 "rush hour" lanes.

Since last weekend there has been a car parked on the street in front of my office. It has many many tickets on it and a tow notice pasted prominently on its window. At 3:30 everyday there are tow trucks prowling the opposite side of the street like ghouls looking for cars to tow. (And in the process blocking the "rush hour" traffic they are there to facilitate.) The car just sits there staring out at them.
In the middle is the view of the other side of the street that swarms with tow trucks at 3:30.
