i think that it is great that the city is doing their job, however giving pople tickets when there is no where to for them to put their vehicles is retarded. some people dont know about the bans like which side at what time like you and i might. some people dont have internet access, some dont have cable television and some may not even have a phone or a tv. the may not have a way of knowing at exactly what time they need to move their vehicle. wha if the owner of a vehicle is a single mom with a newbon baby in the house and she needs to move her car bu there are no spots on her street now she has to go to the next street over and walk home with her newborn in a snow storm . i just think they should take things into consideration when tryimg to make more money for the city.

I CAN GO TO ENFIELD AND BACK, IT STILL WONT BE 27 MILES. TO MAKE IT WORTH I GOT A TICKET ON TOP OF THE HIGH PRICE TOWING BILL.

First offense they tow. Second offense they sell your car at auction, and suspend your license for 5 years. No more parking ban violations.

It was $27 in mileage for one & $24 for the other. It was 2 different drivers from 2 different companies. The difference was 1 mile and you were refunded the extra $3 from the higher total. Get your facts straight before you try to drag someone through the mud. And always obey city ordinances and parking bans.
