First they run out of money to repair or replace the broken parking meters, then when people park in front of a meter that is incapable of taking their money the city tickets. This is what the LA city council voted to pass on a 12 to 1 vote. I'd like to meet the one person who voted no to shake their hand. This is as bad as Detroit booting your car and then holding it for a $500 ransom for having your tire touching a curb or cutting yellow lights time down so they can give $400 tickets for running red lights. They will gouge you and #$%$ out of your money anyway they can and they'll still end up in BK.
