This letter is concerning the removal of parking meters in Racine. I agree every parking meter should be removed in the City of Racine. And then how do we recover the $400,000 in revenue they produce?
First, you hire the cop in Wind Point who stops speeders in Wind Point on North Main Street. I've never met this officer, but I've never seen anybody do a better job than him. Offer him an immediate pay raise and pair him up with a couple of officers from Racine. I believe we could very easily raise $1 million dollars the first year.
I drive for a living and I see thousands of violations a week. If you don't believe me, have a cop stand on the corner of 21st Street and Taylor Avenue. You would have to be blind not to see hundreds of violations per day. Today was the third time I almost got killed in that intersection in the past year. Someone please help.
