Be careful where you park

On my bicycle ride into work this morning, I saw about a dozen Minneapolis Traffic Control vehicles driving around the downtown area. And about a dozen more uniformed Traffic Control officers just walking on the sidewalks. Maybe it was just a shift change I never noticed before, or maybe a training day.

Watch those meters, folks.

    maybe they intercepted some “chatter” of a potential critical mass meet up.

    damn those bikers…damn them!

    There was a crap load of parking enforcement cops out around St. Paul this weekend too, WAY more than usual. Wonder what the deal is.

    I believe that there are too many parking meters reserved for the handicapped, especially downtown Minneapolis. Most of the time the meters are not used. Most citizens are not disabled,so fewer meters should be set aside for the disabled.

    Where are there reserved parking meters for the handicapped? I think they just get to park for free at any meter for certain amounts of time. At least, the city’s page about parking doesn’t say that there are reserved meters, and I don’t recall seeing any.

    Other information from the city’s parking regulations page: It’s illegal to replug a meter to stay for longer than the allotted time for that type of meter. Example, a 1-hour meter can only be used for 1 hour. If you replug it, to stay longer than an hour, you could get a ticket.
