What’s a driver to do?
3 big Parking Ticket Land changes will make us gasp. But, one change in particular will make me gasp, pant, and gulp for air.
That is to say the proposed pedestrian ramp rule change will be a costly, $165 nightmare. It is a recurrent bad dream waiting to happen.
If this rule is enacted, parking at all pedestrian ramps will be outlawed.

I’ve been down this road before and this proposed rule change will prove very costly to drivers. Here’s why and what to do about it.
