Parking Pirates

Posted by Len Gilbert on July 15, 2009

parking-piratesBe aware that Oakland has changed its parking enforcement to run until 8pm instead of the current 6pm cutoff. They are also aggressively enforcing neighborhood street parking regulations and raising parking ticket fees. This is in an effort to raise some cash. Kind of like pirates asking you to pay a little “extra protection” to sail past their port. To me, this seems like the wrong message to send to Oakland small businesses.

So if you head out to Zachary’s, Diesel Books, L’Amyx, Lanesplitter, or Peet’s, make sure to check the parking hours and curb your wheels properly or you could be hit with an expensive ticket.

You can read more at the SFGate and the East Bay Express.
