A Most Popular Public-Private Partnership – the System that Tows That Prius from Your Driveway

Step One: Yet Another Pruis Driver parks in front of your garage, oblivious to the World Outside, as is typical for a strong minority of Toyota Prius drivers around the bay area.

Step Two: The cold dawn of day reveals the issue so you call DPT, which will quickly issue a hefty fine and then call for the for-profit part of the deal.

Step Three: It’s buh-bye, Prius, towed away by a somewhat corrupt private company with a euphemistic name. (Note the freeway stickers that take the “H” out of HOV)

(Note the dolly. Does the dolly cost extra? Oh, hell yes, the dolly should always cost extra. That’s how they get you.)

$700 later, the Prius driver will have a painful memory (no matter how rich he or she is) and everyone else will be enriched.  

This whole process can be as fast as two shakes of a lamb’s tail. If only all private-public partnerships worked so efficiently!
