The city wants to keep the parking lane open during the hours of 3:30 to 5:30. So what they do is ticket anyone who is parked there. In order to accomplish this they block all 3 lanes of traffic. This is last night at 4:10, not a lot different from any night. 6 cars had been ticketed earlier. In the third picture you can see the owner of the car. In the last picture she is pleading with the meter reader. I do not know if she was successful. I left after 10 minutes of watching this. Obviously all 3 lanes were blocked that entire time. So that's good.
