Here’s what westside denizen James Corrigan saw the other day – yet another SmartCar with a Denver Boot on the front left wheel:
What this means is that the owner let at least five parking tickets go unpaid.
The way the owner got the tickets was through forcing it into parking spaces that were illegal, one assumes. These drivers just do whatever they can because they “know” they’ll fit into a space that no one else can. So they park on sidewalks, they overhang crosswalks, they run the gamut is what they do.
Now before the Smart Car came out, your parking champion around town was your “small premium” MINIs. but now we’re in the era of the Smart, which is a little bit bigger than what they sell in Europe, but even so, this ride is way smaller than a MINI.
No matter, just because you have a small car, that doesn’t mean you have reserved parking all over town…
