Unknown to us (until recently) 142,000 free parking permits were issued by this fair city. Unknown to the city, is exactly who received these permits.

All I know is this chap on Decatur Street has found a way to avoid being ticketed for having a derelict car parked for over two months. Do you want to know his secret? Read on.

Happy Holidays!

First, you put a very friendly sign on said car. Be sure to wish the reader seasonal cheer.

Expired Permit

Second, be sure you have a(n expired) permit for the “Real Time Crime Center” on your dashboard.

Thirdly, is it just me? But a busted up car with a smashed windshield belonging (ostensibly) to an officer of the law strikes me as sending a very negative message to the public. I think I read it about this kind of thing somewhere. It was called the “Broken Windows” theory, I think.
