Can you trust a parking meter?

Apparently parking meters are programmed with the same timers used to limit public comments at council meetings.

 

Cheated by the very people elected to serve. Sort of like the voter suppression subterfuge that Qualls, Quinlivan, Young, Thomas, and Chris "Judas Iscariot" Seelbach used to prevent you from voting on Cincinnati's future.

Don't stand for it.  Sign the parking petition today.

  1. Why are you guys against privatization? I'm so confused. As a moderate conservative I support privatization.

    Also, the newer credit card meters which would replace all of these are significantly more accurate. I have them outside of my business downtown.

  3. COAST's real motivationMarch 13, 2013 at 2:28 PM

    Roger,

    COAST is only fiscally conservative when they won't be affected. Notice how Mark Miller (TREASURER of coast) supported the stadium deal which has left the county with hardly any funds. He supported it because his property taxes would be reduced. He didn't care that poor people in the city would be spending more money on sales tax for all of their goods. As long as he had lower taxes it was a good plan.

    They oppose the parking deal because they don't want to pay additional money at meters (they realize the government's inefficiency and take advantage of it for personal gain). They know that a private company will actually enforce the laws they routinely break, so they don't want the change. Also, they don't like to see progress in Cincinnati (new interchange, new downtown hi-rise, etc).

    Business benefit from longer parking meter hours because it encourages turnover of parking spaces, making it easier to find parking in front of your favorite restaurant rather than circling the block looking for a space when all of the meters are free.

  4. Your comment is false. Mark Miller, along with most COASTers who had an opinion on the stadium deal, opposed the stadium scam from the beginning.

    If you want to find a huge stadium advocate, look to Vice Mayor Roxanne Qualls. She not only supported the stadium, she was the politician that was used on the tv ads to build up public support. Nobody did more than Bob Bedinghaus and Roxanne Qualls to give us that stadium scam.
