I thought this would make a good card. The amount of rules and regulations in the city do get on my nerves. The other day I was talking with my friend who runs a bodega. The city sent him incredibly ugly cigarette posters which had to be installed near the register (if you sell cigarettes). He complained for a half hour about how this would turn people’s stomachs and that he would lose business by putting them up – so he decided to stop selling cigarettes instead.
Basically though – the parking regulations are simply set up as an additional and very lucrative tax. Frankly, I believe I have every right to do dumb stuff so long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else. Simple enough, but for some reason the people that get into power always feel they need to protect me from myself (which hasn’t really worked so far).
