The moronic manaicle mayor of Los Angeles, Tony Villar, has no common logistical sense what-so-ever. A parking system that uses overhead displays on the streets and SmartPhone Apps to tell drivers where nearest parking spaces are, in the already condensed chaos of confusion called Downtown LA is simply stupid. They want to get rid of all distractions while us drivers are behind the wheel, yet they are so densely consumed by their own greed that even though you should not be driving while distracted it is ok in this instance since the city wants to make more money for the numerous corruption projects that they have going.
Oh wait, according to the moron mayor, instead of using your SmartPhone Parking System App while driving he says to pull over and use it to find the best parking space. Tony Villar you truly are an ignorant unqualified excuse for a suit. We all know you do not drive yourself around town and have no worries finding a parking space, but have you ever tried driving downtown during rush hour or on a busy weekend, let alone try to pull over and stop if you are attempting to find something. The answer to that, is most likely an overwhelming, No. By the time one pulls over to use the SmartPhone App, then hopefully without getting a citation from those eager beaver meter maids, and drive to your selected parking space according to the SmartPhone App, it will be consumed by another driver who happened to drive up to it without using the app.
In terms of the overhead information street signs for this absurd project, real smart thinking there everyone. While driving in downtown traffic, taking your eyes of the road for even a second is an almost guarantee to get into a fender bender. So requiring a persistent parking crusader to look up to see where the parking spaces is logically illogical (That is an enigmatic conundrum, way above your feeble political minds, so don’t try to understand).
Let us not forget that this parking system could and most likely will have an adverse effect against doing business in Downtown LA. Those that park on the streets are going to deter to shopping elsewhere and considering the fact that the parking lots available are not the best kept nor reasonably priced why would shopper want to start their days confused and frustrated over finding a spot then having to monitor what price they may pay for an hour of parking. There are plenty of malls around the Downtown LA area that have better merchandise and a more pleasant environment (i.e. lack of dirty bums begging, lack of constant street traffic next to parked vehicles and a lower rate a theft).
The only reason this system was put into place is because of Tony Villars lack of business experience in running a city. He was not educated well enough to manage a city like a business and therefore squandered the budget. His pure lack of any experience or logic has caused Los Angeles to be on the verge of bankruptcy and is currently in utter chaos and controversy. This is not going to make parking easier, in turn it may reduce the sales taxes coming into the city by deterring shoppers. Way to go babbling bumbling moron, Tony Villar.
