Why is Oakland antagonizing its residents? | The Entroporium

Now, virtually unannounced, the City has sent its parking enforcers into residential neighborhoods to pass out parking tickets enforcing the law 100%, plus a mystery $10 recession panic surcharge.  OK, I can understand the City needs to raise some fees.  These are hard times, revenue is falling and the City has a ridiculous budget shortfall: $70mm over on a $500mm total budget, a mighty hunk that needs to be cut.  But somebody should have thought through the Game Theory on this a bit.
