Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is asking for a $10 increase in parking fines. Is he looking for another riot to mark the 20th anniversary of the 1992 uprising?
We're in an economic slump. The city's financial woes were caused by bad decisions by politicians. Now he wants to put his foot on the neck of residents to bail out the city.
The mayor's legacy will be the resentment of L.A. residents.
It would be easy for the city to implement a system to warn residents of impending street sweeping via email, text message or a robo-call. Those who want such a heads-up could sign up online with their street address.
