TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KCPD CONFRONT DOWNTOWN TICKET CRACKDOWN ANGST FROM KANSAS CITY MOTORISTS!!!
Our blog community was FIRST to blog the warning . . .
THE DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY PARKING TICKET CRACKDOWN IS UNDERWAY!!! DRIVERS AREN'T HAPPY WITH COSTLY FEES!!! QUESTIONS ABOUT THE POLICY ALREADY CONFRONT POLICE!!!
For their part, KCPD has been forthright in their view of increased parking enforcement.
Their latest tweet today:
"Parking enforcement has increased city-wide, particularly downtown . . . That's where majority of towing is happening right now. Whether a car is towed depends on a host of factors: how long it's been there, neighborhood complaints, if it's stolen, etc."
To which concerned downtown denizens have replied:
"The issue is not with writing tickets or towing. I have observed unfair,inconsistent and unequal enforcement of parking and towing downtown. It seems to vary day to day, hour by hour, location by location and officer by officer. We need a better solution for residents."
And so we pose the question to our AWESOME TKC BLOG COMMUNITY . . .
IS THE DOWNTOWN PARKING CRACKDOWN FAIR OR JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF POLICE ORDERED TO PROTECT THE INVESTMENTS OF DOWNTOWN DEVELOPERS?!?
You decide . . .
