5200 Lillian is a playground for parking tickets? Street is dark, difficult to navigate with the literally hundreds of cars and deciphering "no parking signs" on top of this deserves a litter of parking tickets for dozens of parked vehicles not blocking driveways or impeding traffic. Why not make parking on Washington avenue easier? You haven't. I supported local business and now get penalized. Never going there again.
Conspiracy against women, Crimes against human beings, 9/11 and the real Trojan horse, Part 2: https://youtu.be/CvKALs658gE Buy "Beyond the silver line" Special edition: paper back from ebay http://ebay.us/kITB53?cmpnId=5338273189 e-Book: https://payhip.com/b/8Ik9
I parked a semi tractor (no trailer) on the street (Rolido Drive) alongside my apartments. I received two citations for each day I was parked there. Meanwhile a car with two flat tires has been parked on that same street for months, no citations. I've parked my truck there before with no issues. Supposedly this is a "residential area" despite having a giant strip center sharing the curb where I was parked. I guess we're back to being nuisances, right? God forbid I don't want to park my truck several miles away from my home. How long before you send these citations to the company? I'll just pay the fines each time if the company doesn't need to be notified. All in all it's still ridiculous.
The Census Bureau's ongoing surveys assist in measuring the economic impact of pandemics and other emergencies, creating plans for the country's eventual recovery. #NationalEMSWeek recognizes the work that EMS workers provide to communities and without Census data, EMS workers would not have the information needed to respond to emergencies quickly and effectively. Respond today at 2020Census.gov to make sure your community is prepared for any emergency. #ACO3186 Safety First Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKgeweuen4o
Today is a great day to remind you criminals that it’s illegal to chalk tires on cars for parking tickets. 🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻
Hey Jackasses. You violated mine and others Constitutional rights...this isn’t going away quietly 🖕🏻
Why are parking meters downtown taking people's money today, December 24th, when the parking apps all say there's no charge today?
Why do truck drivers get citations when there is no trailer on the back of the truck when we come home form over the road an park on the side of the street not blocking no traffic an about twenty cars are parked in the same area are truck drivers not to come home we have lives to or where do we park that's close our apartments or homes it's not right you go to work stay gone weeks at a time come home an can't park your commercial vehicle with the risk of it being towed when there is no posted signage that says no parking of commercial it just to steal our money or what??????
If I were to come up to a typical intersection in Houston, there is no doubt I will see a homeless person. You know what I wouldn't see...any painted lines or curbs telling me where I can and can't park. This city is a joke, run by a clown named Sylvester Turner.
I dropped my husband off at Bush airport yesterday morning. He went into the terminal. I got in the driver’s seat. I immediately realized there was a problem. The vehicle is keyless and the fob was in my husband’s pocket. I could not leave or move the vehicle. It was 3:45 am! I looked around for anyone who could assist me. No one was around. I went into the terminal to see if someone in security could help me. My husband came back as he realized what he’d done. He gave me the fob and as I went back to the vehicle a guy was putting a ticket on my vehicle for leaving it unattended. I tried to explain but he wouldn’t listen. All of this took less than five minutes. I can’t believe that the city needs $70 that bad.
No citation with photographic evidence? No public response? And it was a station that did a piece on violators the previous year. Your silence is deafening.
ParkHouston; Feeling the Post Harvey Love; just got FIRST NOTICE of a parking ticket occurring 9/27/17, for my son's car; THE FIRST DAY WE RETURNED HOME POST HARVEY, and there was NO PARKING. Thank you so much. I'd contest but do not have time. I cannot even believe that you would give a ticket at such a time, with the area torn apart and in turmoil. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH. This will be paid today but I totally disagree with the mindset that led to this.
