Eyes on the Street: Placard Abuse, From Sea to Shining Sea

We got a tip yesterday about an errant driver hogging a curbside spot in a residential area:

So, outside my house is a street with two hour parking. Today a Jaguar with dealer plates was parked there all day. When I checked, it was because there was an FD placard on the car.

No news there, right? Except our tipster was Streetsblog LA's Damien Newton, and the placard in question was emblazoned with the logo of the FDNY Uniformed Firefighters Association.

Placards without borders. Gotta love it.
