Parking enforcement director Kevin Helfer ought to be ashamed of himself. His storm troopers are giving tickets out on alternate parking days without giving any legitimate grace period. The fact that the city even has these rules in the summer is a joke. It’s an outright fleecing of the middle class residents.

The latest example here is over on Weyand Street. Did you ever notice they never enforce these rules in the poorer neighborhoods? The parking cops are cowards and are afraid they might get attacked. I’d like to see eggs or water balloons thrown at these lowlifes. Someone on Weyand Street please send me the name of the officer giving out tickets at 6:05. I’d like to give him some much needed recognition…
