    I get so upset at people who ignore the "No Parking - Fire Lane" painted along the sidewalks at the shopping center. Yesterday, some one parked there to go in to Starbucks! I almost said, "Doesn't the No Parking sign mean YOU?" Grrr!

    Our Mall has its own security That drives around all day, and they tow them.

    Just think of it this way---you park a little farther away and all that walking will make you healthier than the guy not following the rules. (who will probably have a heart attack tomorrow)

    There will always be those people who think the rules don't apply to them because "I'm just going in for a second." Just keep smiling and remember Karma will get them in the end. They'll also be the ones stuck in a blizzard for three days because the weather warnings "didn't apply to them " either.
    LOL, and safe in my driveway.

    AND the Handicapped parking. I absolutely despise the healthy people who park there, with or without Grandpa's parking pass hung on the mirror. And then they get out and trot to the store. When I get angry they merely shrug and say that it was the only close parking space there!! I've pushed my late DH's wheelchair half a block in pounding rain to get to a doctor's office, and in the sun and wind when he wanted to go to a special store, while younger healthy people parked near by in
    the handicapped parking spaces.
    Once when I was chewing a young man out a meter reader came along and asked if it was HIS parking pass. And he got an expensive ticket while several older people and I stood and almost cheered. I think the ticket at that time was about $170 or so, YEAH!!

    They get fined and towed here so I've heard. I don't park close so I have to walk farther. Every little step helps:)
