Here is corruption from the word go, when a person gets a ticket for parking in his own driveway, just because it is an unpaved surface, this is how dumb these people are educated today, see this is why we are having a water problem, there is to much concrete and asphalt so water can’t soak in to the ground, this is why the water table is disappearing.
TOLEDO, Ohio – Residents of Toledo, Ohio, are complaining that they received $25 tickets for parking their vehicles in their own driveways.
Mayor Carty Finkbeiner (FINK’-by-ner) says he stands by the citations handed out last week by the Division of Streets, Bridges and Harbor. He says the tickets were issued under a city law against parking on unpaved surfaces, including gravel driveways.
During a news conference Monday, Finkbeiner ignored a reporter’s question of whether the crackdown and fines were related to the city’s budget crisis.
The three-term mayor faces a recall vote in November. Critics have claimed he’s wasted city money.
City Councilman D. Michael Collins calls the ticketing “Mickey Mouse nonsense.” He has told residents he’ll try to have the citations rescinded.
