Those Chicago Parking Meters

I mentioned the privatization of Chicago's parking meters the other day in a post called 28 Quarters for Two Hours. I read today that people are starting to vandalize the meters out of frustration that their government is selling out on the things they should be doing and doing way to much of the things they have no business doing. Check it out:

... people who are writing to him have a sense of "anger, frustration, rage in some cases."

To the point where some, it appears, are vandalizing the meters. Pictures on Mike's website show meters deliberately smashed, taken apart, spray-painted, or deliberately jammed.

"People suggest taking a quarter, putting some super glue on it, and putting it in the coin slot," Mike said.

Also here: The Expired Meter more ongoing updates...
