« Legalizing marijuana controls use by youth. Vote for Measure 91. | Main | "Salem, open your eyes." My new blogging passion. »

I would be interested to know what organization keeps leaving notices on my car telling me I am at risk of being ticketed for illegally parking in a marked and completely unregulated spot adjacent to the Cherriots bus terminal downtown. There are no signs limiting parking and no meters. So why the threat of a ticket?

Dave, it must be the City of Salem parking enforcement folks. All I can think of is that they might think you are a downtown employee or other person who isn't supposed to use the free unlimited onstreet parking spaces. I can't recall what the other categories are. Jury duty people are one, I believe.
