Editor's Comment: What I don't understand is why don't they do this all the time? Why do they feel the need to make a public announcement that basically says "we're going to start enforcing the law now, so be warned." If you park a car illegally in New York City you can barely count to ten before a municipally owned tow truck comes along to scoop it up. And in order to get your car back you have to pay for the parking ticket, the tow fees, and storage. Once it becomes very expensive for people to park their cars illegally, then they will stop doing it. And what's more, they should sub-contract this out so that whoever is doing the towing is monetarily motivated by getting paid for each tow. Obviously there would be a need for photographic evidence, two person integrity, etc.
