    No parking here on Monday 8 a.m. - 10 a.m. do to street sweeping every week then the other side of the street no parking due to street sweeping on Tuesday...

    This has to be the biggest cock sucking play for money in the history of municipalities ...

    Jesus fuck do the streets really need to be swept every fucking week?

    I'm not talking about thoroughfares littered with empty containers trash we're talking about shady tree-lined residential streets with zero trash

    You mean the same red light cams that were mostly removed when it was revealed that the yellow light have been reduced buy a fraction of a second in order to generate Revenue those red lights correct?

    Not in Chicago, they haven't. And they've added Speed cams in school zones until late in the evening and on weekends.

    Some streets do "need" it every week and some more often. Of course, "need" is a relative term.

    I put my horsetrailer on the side lawn cuz the driveway was full and i got "a friendly reminder" i was parked illegally and had 72 hrs. 72 hrs later the trailer was moved but it got another "friendly reminder" that i had some chipping paint.

    Fuck the city.

    For years and years, all the towns in the immediate vicinity did the street sweeping scam, while ours did not. We still had street sweepers that cruised around all the time, but they would just swing around parked cars and get that spot the next time. The system worked perfectly. The streets got cleaned and the citizens weren't in any way inconvenienced.

    Then, about 18 months ago, the Public Works department quietly issued a press release announcing that we would be phasing in street sweeping parking restrictions around the city over the next year. People were pissed and happily made their feelings on the subject known. The mayor now claims that it's California environmental laws that are forcing them to do this. Some lame bullshit about storm runoff going into the ocean.

    I've probably gotten a half dozen of these bullshit tickets over the last 10 years in my house.
    Literally at 9:05 am they're out writing tickets as fast as they can before people leave for work. I've seen them

    Near my kids school there's a guy with five junk cars in perpetual violation of the 72 hour rule, the meter dude hits everyone for every little violation but not this guy, turns out he's some juiced in ex-cop.
