It looks like the people at KPIX CBS-5 had it right last year when they repeatedly reported on the “parking hustle,” which involves people posing as lot attendants and pocketing some quick cash. Some parkers, such as Shane, get major bummed when they find out later on that they also need to pay the parking lot owner.
Why don’t people pay the actual real attendent? Because there isn’t one on duty in most cases. Why? Because that would cost money. But the folks over at Central Parking have found a way to warn drivers by posting a photo of one of the alleged imposters. How thoughtful.
