According to city officials in Providence, Rhode Island, there were 442,894 parking tickets at least a month past due in their city as of March 26. Including the original fee and late fines, this could add up to $6.6 million.
I’m shocked by the total and by the total lack of enforcement. With numbers like that, how can you blame the low-lifes who don’t pay their fines? It’s obvious the city can’t enforce its parking laws and at least half a million people know nobody’s really going to make them comply to parking regulations.
If you’re going to make a law, you have to enforce it or it becomes a joke.
