Parkers resisting Dukakis so far

creditMichael Dukakis's campaign to free Westwood of the plague of apron parking — parking in driveways so as to obstruct sidewalks, for the uninitiated — has hit a snag. City parking officials have apparently decided not to ticket apron violators until the end of the spring quarter, according to the Daily Bruin at UCLA. Dukakis, the 1988 Democratic candidate for president, got some ink back in November for his personal declaration of war against apron parking in the neighborhood. Students, though, complained that without aprons the parking squeeze in the North Village residential area would be untenable. The blog Nemesis of Evil notes the delay could end up hurting Flexcar's exploitation of the situation to recruit UCLA students.
