Parking Pablum

Let’s not let the always dependable Bea Reyna-Hickey, the city’s revenue director, go unnoticed.

“The Chicago Sun-Times reported in August that Chicago Police officers had written 84,000 fewer tickets than last year and were on pace to end the year with a 9 percent dropoff from the 1.63 million police-issued tickets in 2007,” the paper reports.

“At a City Hall news conference Monday, Reyna-Hickey at first attributed the ticket plunge to drivers who ‘take their parking more seriously’ and are less inclined to park illegally.”

If only – though we should all drive and park to the letter of the law just to spite the mayor, who is depending on our violations to balance his budget.

“But, questioned further, she said, ‘Police [ticketing] has decreased . . . Clearly the police have a lot of other important things to tend to.”

The moral of the story: Always question further. And take your parking seriously.

    I am so sick of you guys parroting the Bullshit that comes out from the Mayors office as if it were Gold.

    Get a backbone and question the administration for god sake.

    Prove that the 1st Amendment is worth it.
