Steve Penn writes: "On Nov. 19, the city’s Parking Services Division took over parking enforcement downtown, replacing the Police Department’s traffic enforcement crews." Long term: If KC's downtown renaissance pipe-dreams elicit even a modicum of new traffic, KC will be there to profit from inevitable increase in tickets. Essentially, this is good news but doesn't compare to the revenue which will be generated by the upcoming piracy that parking lot owners will be able to enforce without much regulation. Increased public transportation (for all of you po'folk) would be a welcomed solution . . . If anybody used it. In the meantime, Kansas City will continue to run around in circles and waste time considering impractical light rail schemes.
