|Note to Miami Beach City Manager Jorge Gonzalez: |
This is NOT a legal parking space.
Really, he does.
Gonzalez has been Miami Beach's City Manager for almost a dozen years.
But, in that time he's done virtually nothing to put the brakes on Miami Beach's two towing companies. Companies that some say engage in "legalized theft." (At least that's how one veteran Miami Beach police officer once described their activities.)
Well, all that may be about to change. According to my sources, Gonzalez has ordered a review of the city's towing policy.
The reason for Gonzalez's sudden change of heart? In January, Gonzalez had his car towed by Beach Towing from a space on Lincoln Road.
In the wake of that unpleasant experience, several sources tell me that Gonzalez may be looking at revising and/or rewriting the city's towing policy.
Or, as one well-placed source puts it, "He got his car towed and now suddenly he gives a f**k about the Tow Policy."
Another source says that Gonzalez was able to get his car back without paying.
On another note, here at Random Pixels we are incredulous that Gonzalez does not have some kind of dashboard placard or window decal that warns parking enforcement officers that his car is not eligible to be towed. (C'mon Jorge! You mean to tell me you can get all kinds of free tickets but you don't have the good sense to figure out how to keep your car from being towed?)
Anyway, with that in mind, I've taken the liberty of having the Random Pixels Design Studio whip up this spiffy dashboard placard just for you Mr. City Manager.
Just have your assistant print it out and next time you're over on Lincoln Road, place it where it's visible to those pesky parking enforcement dudes and everything should be just fine. Guaranteed.
