Well, one of mine finally made it to the Youparklikeanasshole site. Ever since I got my little Xacti camera I take it with me everywhere. You never know what you might see.

I do wish they’d put up the one of the SUV with the round FOP badge (Cop) parked across two spaces.

But the pic they did use has three offenses. Too large a vehicle taking up too many spots and blocking the entrance, the VW is pulled a little far ahead, and then there’s the other pretentious SUV parked across two spots.

My interest in this article was piqued because it related to parking meters. In essence, if you’re a resident of a city you’re not only paying taxes to support the infrastructure, etc. You’re paying it over and over and over again.

And here in Providence, RI they’ve installed close to 2,000 new parking meters as well as red light cameras (Which I’ve ranted about in a previous post.)

But who would have thought of using parking meters for explosives testing. I do note of those several thousand new meters in my city, some seem to go missing on a regular basis. You just see the depression where the meter was ripped out.
