Parking enforcement=idling enforcement?

Posted on Wed, Feb 24, 2010 at 1:06 PM

A Parking Enforcement truck (these are part of HR police, no?) sat idling from 5-5:30pm, Tuesday evening, on Fenwick Street near Lucknow. Thirty minutes! (Maybe even longer...I just happened to walk by at both times.) The windows were open so I assume it wasn't because the officer inside was trying to heat his vehicle. He was searching something on his fancy little laptop, but I doubt a running engine is a power supply requirement.

It would be nice to see some modern-day environmental philosophies implemented to city organizations.

The fact that this action has no legal consequences to the officer, while the choice of where a citizen parks their car in public—in THEIR city, whose employees' salaries THEY pay for with taxes—costs them a hefty fine, is proof of the lack of understanding of the word "priorities".
