and driving business away from my tenants?
I think $25,000 per ticket sounds about right. I’m going to speak with my attorney about it today. These thugs need to realize they can’t just do whatever they want. I know their main job function is to bring in city & county revenue, by writing frivolous traffic tickets. But my tenants and I also pay a great deal of money in business & property taxes.
That would be a really useless thing to do, even to think about. If you have a real problem with your customers legitimately getting parking tickets, then why don’t you post a sign saying that parking meter infractions are strictly enforced in that area, and suggest that if anyone needs a change for the meter you will gladly take 25 cents out of your cash register so they can feed the meter. If you are really what you say you are you should be dam* glad the police pay attention to your neighbourhood and enforce the laws. That’s what we (including businessmen) pay them to do so quit whining.
