Indianapolis Cracks Down on Parking Abuse

The city of Indianapolis is attempting to put to an end the abuse of parking placards by public employees, politicians and business leaders, the Indianapolis Star reports. The city will no longer honor more than 3,000 placards that allowed free parking at metered spots.
INDIANAPOLIS - An era of widespread downtown Indianapolis parking perks came to an end Wednesday as the city confiscated hundreds of placards that allowed drivers to disregard meters and the county prepared to take that privilege away from another 1,500 people.
Officials said their actions, which will cut the number of parking placards in circulation by 70 percent, were a response to an investigation by The Star last month that showed some drivers used the dashboard permits to park all day without paying, clogging spots used for Downtown commerce.
