Oh, that's people bashing the parking meters.
Near Broadway and Addison, meter after meter are broken.
"I called the company and I said I don't want a ticket," one woman said.
LAZ is a Chicago company which collects the money for the New York owner which paid the city $1.2 billion to lease the city's 36,000 meters for 75 years. They've pasted new stickers on them, doubled the rates to as much as a quarter for five minutes in the Loop. That's $3 an hour to $2 an hour in many other neighborhoods. People are angry.
That's funny, out here in Redville, I've never seen a parking meter.
What's so damn "progressive" about parking tickets?
