Rockville Centre is getting so bad with parking Nazi's maybe he didn't want to get life for over time parking and used the diversion to help him escape!!

It's that new "parking meter system", in Rockville Centre, that can drive 'a man' to 'drink'.

Apparently he didn't know the meters were changed in the middle of the night to 25 minutes for 5 sheckles instead of the usual 30 minutes in all other civilized villages, so who knew the village was out to trick us out of our hard earned money??

Maybe he should branch out to the red light cameras that are being installed on every corner in every town and village in every corner of the world, amazing that the government can get you going through a red light when they are asleep (Cause they make $55 a shot, no pun intended) but they can't find a person who is over 6'6 and has a failing kidney and needs constant medical attention and lives in a cave someplace) makes you thing what is important to them, catching someone who goes through a red light or doesn't stop on a turn for 3 seconds, or somebody who destroyed our economy and murdered over 3,000 people in the USA???
