LMAO…cities trying to balance their budgets from parking fines! Sounds like a DemonRAT trick
This is good news and for another reason. It is the first step against facebook,twitter and others using our info
It is not surprising that the court addressed this issue, rather than focusing on illegal border crossing and other issues that citizens want addressed.
That court needs to be completely CLOSED. More important things going on, and they take the time and money to park on this item??? CA, wake up.
Law Enforcement to busy with Illegals and criminals to deal with parking issues.
