Sign Albuquerque is Desperate to Raise Revenue

I was downtown the other day and received a ticket on my car. I wondered what I did wrong and when I took a look at the ticket, I saw this. How many of you, dear readers, knew that parking more than 18 inches from the curb was an infraction? It would seem that our City’s meter maids are being charged with closing at least part of Albuquerque’s budget gap.
It would seem that if Albuquerque’s meter maids are going to be so aggressive it kind of limits the usefulness of efforts to get people to come downtown, right?
