Yet another example of the city keeping the streets clear. Here the tow truck sits waiting for the meter reader to come and give the car a ticket (you can see in the first picture that there is no ticket on the car) so he can tow it. Oddly, the meter reader, of which there are generally 2 or 3 thousand hovering on the block, was nowhere in sight and the truck patiently waited for 20 minutes (blocking traffic the entire time), so long that the owner of the car, who was in violation of city ordinance for over 20 minutes came out, frantically got in his car, drove off and got away scott free. The middle picture is the evil tow truck driver.
