City Paper is not for tourists
So says Ward 1 Councilmember Jim Graham in a press release this morning.
In an oversight hearing last month, Department of Motor Vehicles Director Lucinda Babers revealed that its been a longstanding policy (15 years!) to reduce by half tickets accrued by big fleet operators in the city—-folks like FedEx and UPS who regularly foul up downtown traffic by stopping in travel lanes.
Well, no more, Graham reports.
The change could mean as much as $120,000 yearly in extra revenue, Graham claims.
