TACOMA: City overly aggressive with ticketing

As a downtown business owner, it is difficult enough running a business in this economy without having the City of Tacoma’s overly aggressive parking enforcement frustrating visitors with parking tickets for not turning their wheels to the curb.

Please, instead of fining people, the city should just leave a friendly notice. We should be encouraging people to visit downtown Tacoma, but the aggressive ticketing is not helping.
