City Council Won’t Let You Protest Your Parking Ticket Over the Phone

City Council—while considering proposals from Councilman Bill Green on new methods for citizens to protest parking violations—has asked that telephonic hearings be removed from the conversation. Council posits—and Bill Green concedes—that phone hearings would create too many logistical problems. But, online and snail mail protests will still be considered and put to a final vote later this month. [CBS 3]
