Re: “Tacoma parking enforcement too aggressive, downtown business owners say” (TNT, 2-17).
It’s too bad that the scofflaws are getting caught and the business owners are complaining. I wish the parking enforcement people could pay a visit to my neighborhood. I tried to be a good neighbor a few weeks ago, informing a neighbor that his tabs expired in December 2010. Well, you can’t print what he said. So much for trying to be “nice.”
Business owners should assist their customers instead of blaming the city for their customers’ scofflaw attitudes. I do not agree however, with the parking enforcement people waiting around for the “time” to expire, but writing tickets for expired tags and missing front plates is well within the law.
