a) giving tickets when people violate clearly marked parking rules, or
b) not giving people tickets, and stoking the ire of law-abiding people who pass by the freeloaders as they go pay at the parking structure?

I really, really wish someone can explain the squeamishness about enforcing rules. There’s already a grace period built into expiring meters (to my knowledge). Am I missing something here?

Also, according to one community standards officer I spoke with, when the police budget gets cut, the chief “sure as heck isn’t going to lay off a cop.” Is my understanding correct that community standards folks more than pay for their salary and benefits through fines? And if so, why aren’t there more of them?

Time to move, or time to have the ‘big dog’ cover its own bridges, traffic redirections, etc. Why do I feel like the host to a parasite that’s just going to continue to grow until it bursts through my stomach and leaves me for dead?
