Oakland May Change Course on Parking Tickets

The Oakland City Council may halt the recent practice of ticketing cars that are parked the wrong way on narrow streets. According to the Trib, a council committee approved the change earlier this week, and the full council will take up the issue on Tuesday. The city’s parking enforcement division began ticketing cars parked the wrong way this summer in an effort to raise revenues. But the move sparked a backlash among residents who contend that it’s sometimes unsafe to turn their cars around on narrow streets so that they’re facing the right direction.
