Parking meter hikes, ticket writing to be delayed in areas

The meters are overstuffed? This private contractor can't get out to collect the money fast enough?
This is the absolute height of inefficiency when a company can't be bothered to collect its fees.
The city should put a bounty on the full meters. When encountered, it should be legal for citizens to take out their giant tube cutters and liberate the meters ala Paul Newman.

So glad I moved out years ago. Keep your inefficient big city and outrageous fees Czar Daley.
