Mister_Mean 5pts Not even 21st century parking meters would make me want to go down town Dallas and park. The city has a long standing problem with parking (and the related booting/fines/towing) that never seems to be solved. Last year we had stories about people’s cars being booted down town and after much noise and posturing by the city council and staff it seems that that has not changed. Lets face it no matter how much lip stick the city tires to put on the city of Dallas under it all is the same old song and dance. When they (the city) are tying to close long established businesses they are going after non informed visitors (and citizens) in a “gotcha” attitude designed to hit the public’s wallets.
