traffic wardens

the white car is parked in a no parking zone that is reserved for buses


and here is the bus that just came in, it has to park further out in the road which causes a traffic jam.


checking the other vehicles in the area.  Drivers are supposed to pay and display their parking meter slip that has the time stamped on it in their window.  If you don't have one or if it's expired you get a fine.

  3. Hello,
    Parking in the bus space, that is a no-no. No one wants a parking ticket. Enjoy your day, have a great new week!

  7. The owner of the white car will have light pockets after this encounter, I suspect.

  10. I have to say these traffic wardens look adorable in their age. If they were here, nobody will mess up and respect them. The traffic enforcers here in the Philippines are the younger kind that's why when road problems arises, they tend to shout and the drivers will shout back and a fight might just start anytime! But we respect the elderly so much so surely they will be great here. It would be so hard for the elderly to work as traffic enforcers here though because of the constant 30-40 degree celsius kind of afternoons. happy new week my friend Bill! Weekend was fast!

  11. It's a bit amazing that it takes 3 of them to pass out tickets. But they aren't wearing face masks...so I'd given them a ticket too!

  15. We have to pay to park in our downtown too but, they have meters at each spot. I haven't seen the wardens checking the meters in a very long time.

  16. I drove buses for many years and I can vouch that there are a lot of jerks that never have a drier's licence.

  18. Sounds like they are the same as our parking enforcement officers here.

  19. It's aggravating when people don't follow the rules of the road!

  20. I suppose they do a good job, but I'm sure they don't make many friends through their efforts.

  21. Bus stop zones are strictly enforced in Chicago. No one parks in them. Perhaps the owner of the white car will learn not to do this in the future.

  29. And if you drove the white car you should come out to find your car towed to an impound lot. )).
