Open letter to the mayor and council:
Re: Enforcing KGH Parking Rules Plan Outlined, Nov. 8 Capital News.
You are kidding, right? You believe that towing people that park around the hospital is the answer?
The hospital suggests the staff park in the lot on Ethel Street. Well, considering that most people that work in that life saving building start when it is dark and get off when it is dark that is a long way to walk unprotected in the dark. How will you feel when someone gets robbed, raped, or worse?
It was bad enough when you raised the fine for parking safely from $5 to $25, but trust me, $25 has been a small price for most of us to pay to ensure we are safe.
Not to mention family—parking on the street, rushing a family member to emergency, when the parking lot is on the far opposite side of the hospital and your only thought is to get help.
You are telling me that you’re going to add insult to their injury and tow them away.
Give your head a shake, this is just another civic cash grab.
For once, think with your heart instead of your wallet.
