Dear Editor: Save gas by suspending parking rules?! That has to be a joke. If you don't want to circle the block, then drive your car into one of the many half-empty parking decks in town. And from what I have seen, the Mayor and parking director have already suspended the enforcement of corner parking rules - I assumed it was part of the Mayor's election promise to add parking. Too bad it interferes with public safety.
If you really want to put the Mayor and parking director's phone numbers to good use, call them and tell them to enforce the laws and enforce them consistently.
