The city is reportedly under pressure to administer a higher number of parking tickets.
Dallas, Texas (WiredPRNews.com) – The city of Dallas is reportedly under pressure to ticket more drivers who park illegally. As reported by CBS 11 News, the city must meet its goal of issuing 198,000 citations for the year to avoid paying a $1,114,000 penalty to a private company it uses for maintenance of parking meters and red light cameras.
As noted in the report, layoffs and newly implemented procedures have led to the city only having 20 ticket writers left to do the job. Parking Enforcement Manager Paul Currington is quoted by CBS 11 News as stating that despite the setback, “I’m still pretty confident, at this point, that we’re going to meet that goal.” The city reportedly issued 155,000 citations last year.
