Free flowing traffic

In their never ending campaign to make sure our downtown streets are clear for the onslaught of rush hour traffic, the city has mandated "no left hand turns" between 3:30 and 6. As you can see, at 5 pm, the inability to turn left is keeping the traffic flowing nicely, all 6 of the cars were moving well.

It is exactly 3:37. I took this picture at 3:33 (no parking starts at 3:30). The guy towing it arrived and waited for the meter maid to get there and give the ticket. Fortunately the guy who owned the car came out before he got towed and was able to get his car before it got taken away. Unfortunately, the car on the truck wasn't so lucky.

Tow, then ticket

The tow truck arrived before the meter reader. He just waited patiently for the guy to come and write the ticket. The people in the car behind it came walking out of the bank and had a nearly cartoonish realization what was happening and that they were next. They ran to their car, examined their ticket in horror and fled. I have no idea what the guy was doing walking in the middle of the road.

Three at once

The city must feel so proud. Tonight they towed 3 at one time. Imagine the money they will make.
