Central Falls is desperate & obviously very very money hungry, this type of action is to be expected, we all know that Rhode Island is said to be a Police State. Central Falls blew through it's resources giving our hard earned tax money etc. to the overwhelming hispanic community & all us Americans get in return is billboards in spanish & we lost our KFC & McD's on Broad st. A few years ago due to they were pushed out of the area, never heard an area ever losing so much American Culture before ever, is there any left at all in Central Falls, definitely not much at all, Central Falls is an excellent example of an experiment that went wrong, it went out of control, so this parking ban is their creative way to legally empty your wallet if you end up with nowhere to park but on the street after 1am, Oh...Joy, well Happy New Year :)

I am a senior citizen, live on the third floor and have bad knees. I now have to walk 2 blocks to a lot to park every day and night. Which one of the stooges thought of this one?

I don't know what's worse - your hamfisted scapegoating of culture that's been a presence in this community for at least forty years (to say nothing of the 200 some odd years they were on this continent before we Anglos got up the guts to try our luck) or the fact that your examples of "American culture" are McDonald's and KFC.

Just trying to say it in a nice understandable way, oh I should be shaking in my American shoes due to your one way thinking, Oh sorry I almost forgot the only way to make you all happy is to knock up all under age children to spread your demon seeds also all bow to you "The Race" & yes it is old news, all Americans knew Central Falls would end up bankrupt supportting your hidden terrorisim of "the race", the Experiment of support to understand if it did happen to this country period, resulted in bankrupting the City of Central Falls period & was a failure, so face it & stop trying to change this country from a melting pot to all to your own, as for me...being hated just because you are aware of your surroundings as an American is alway's expected to be ignored, God forbid anyone from seeing the light,.as an American I suppose we are all so envious of you that we all overlooked it all believing that change is good, just to see it all go to hell, Central Falls is slowly just starting to recover & I hope it evolves into a fair evenly giving helping community again as I have been told by others that it used to be fair to it's races as a melting pot, years ago.

Now the police chief wants a smoking ban. If police work is that slow, why not do like private industry does and lay off some workers. Creating "busy work" won't make taxpayers happy.
