This is absolutely absurd. City governments now giving fines to ordinary people for very small (and just created) technicalities. Seriously how much more are people willing to take? You also see one of the men in the video lamenting the fact that he has to pay but still willing to pay it.
Authority is so deep set in our culture it seems the normal populace will just stoop over and receive.

Your thoughts?

Someone should check to see if the mayor of that town has relatives in the driveway paving business, or if he gets a kickback on each new driveway paving contract someone gets. I caught something like that going on where I use to live about 12 years ago, had to do with street paving contracts.

I have heard of them getting you if you blocked a public sidewalk, which alot of people have in front of their homes. It was real convenient how the Mayor would not answer the reporters questions. Betcha his career dissipation light just went into overdrive....

Definition of authority: (law dictionary)
au·thor·ity (ə t̸hôr′ə tē, -t̸här′-)

noun pl. authorities -·ties

1. the power or right to give commands, enforce obedience, take action, or make final decisions; jurisdiction
2. the position of one having such power a person in authority
2. such power as delegated to another;

Does that sound like anything a grown, responsible person would want to subject themselves to? We have given away our right to command ourselves. We have allowed others to enforce obedience on us, to take action against us; we concede to their final decisions and grant others jurisdiction over our lives. We delegate our power.

Note that the power is ours as sovereign individuals. TPTB have only as much authority as you grant them or recognize as belonging to them. I am not a child in need of discipline nor will I submit to the threats of punishment for deeds I do not deem necessary for myself.

TPTB are not going to give us back our innate authority. We have to take it back just like we surrendered and delegated it to them: one thing at a time.

Sorry the sound card on my puter quit working a week ago, So I could not hear what the Mayor was saying.. But still private property is "private" as long as the vehicle is "legal" ie. tags ins. inspetion.. etc.. there should be no legal reason for a "parking ticket"

What minor technicalities were involved in this??? what ordinances were passed? I do not live in Ohio, So am curious as to how this came about..

Also sounds to me like the Mayor might be involved in some form of kickback.

Bad for Mayor in the next elections.
Unless he can do a Bloumberg.
The out come of which is still awaiting trial.

Law makers find as many paydays as wall street but only

Go to law school instead of out West young man.
Or however the saying went.

This reminds me of a true story, a friend at work years ago told..up in brideport, CT, one night, his friend got smashed n drunk at a bar. Some cop followed him home,a nd pulled him over abuot 8 from his driveway and arrested him for drunk driving... 8 feet from his driveway! I asked him, if his friend had any pesoanly 'beef' witht he cop..he answered no.
Ironically, another guy in my city once told,..some guy was, of course, drunk, driving home at around 3 am....local coppulled him over just 3 opr 4 ffet from his drive, AND had his car impounded!
I dont thinik i will ever undeerstand how the law really works

what i never understood about his sotry..was why the cop allowed a drunk man to drive 7 or 8 miles at late night, then pull him over 8 from his house? yuode thk since he made it home, he can go sober up now...the cop let a potential life costing accident drive around..

I have a solution...lay down alot of plywood with big nails and then get that "rock coating" paint and make it look paved. Could always leave it bare just to screw with them.

As for the sidwalk, if your bumper sticks out half way...paint over part of the sidewalk and your driveway to make the sidewalk look like it curves. Then take lots of photos for proof.

parking on unpaved surfaces, including

I just checked and it does seems the cement concession has
a lock the pavement requirements although what happened
to the grandfather clause. This law didn't happen over night.
Another story with many holes.

According to the Gotti snitch there was a lot of cement payday
hikes during the building of the World Trade Towers. Cement
was handled by all the right people.
