Fine Way to Balance the Budget

I blogged before about the City of Detroit increasing the number of parking tickets that they write.  However, they seem to be increasing even more.

I stopped by PC Place (17051 W. Warren Ave.) last Thursday to pick up a new computer keyboard after I spilled Pepsi on my old one. I'm glad these guys are in the neighborhood and consistently cheap.

During the approximately ten minutes that I was in that store, the Municipal Parking Department swooped in.  They issued two parking tickets for offenses that I have never heard of them issuing a ticket for before:
  1. Parking within thirty feet of a stop sign; and
  2. Parking within twenty feet of a cross walk.
 Thankfully, my car wasn't one of those hit by these vultures.  I was able to escape this mandatory contribution to the municipal coffers.

Anyway, I just want to remind everyone that the City of Detroit is issuing parking tickets like they are going out of style.  I also want to remind everyone that spilling a can of Pepsi on your computer keyboard is a really bad idea.
