Why are select few in city allowed to park illegally?
After reading the article regarding the hot spots for parking tickets, I felt the need to write in with an observation I made years ago. On my way to work every morning, I would see cars parked illegally on Delaware Avenue from the foot of the Skyway to the traffic circle, which impeded the traffic flow for Southtowns commuters. Never was a ticket witnessed on a windshield in front of the courthouses, lawyers’ offices, Holding Center, etc.
As I continued on my journey to work on the Children’s Hospital campus, I would see tickets all along Bryant Street and Hodge Street every morning on any car parked illegally. Why is it that special preference is given to that two-block strip of Delaware, to those in law enforcement and the legal system, but the health care community or those with sick children 2 miles down the road aren’t afforded the same opportunity to park wherever they want regardless of what the sign says?
