Connie Kemm went to the Plaza Hotel to have lunch with a co-worker last week. When they left, she found an orange marking on her tire.
That marking signaled the city’s new effort to check whether motorists are parking for more than 90 minutes in downtown areas.
Kemm didn’t get a ticket because she stayed there for less than the time limit. But she wasn’t happy with the marking.
“I was annoyed that anyone would mark my tire while it was parked in a legal parking area,” she said.
