I was just about home last night, when I passed a car parked on the sidewalk just down the street. For whatever reason, I decided to actual try and do something about it this time. So I called the non-emergency police number and told the dispatcher that they could score an easy ticket, as there was a car parked on the sidewalk. While he didn’t say it, I could sense from the dispatchers voice that he thought I was wasting their time.
I figured nothing would come of this call, so I sat down with the family to enjoy dinner. Part way through the meal, I was shocked when I saw out the window that a police cruiser was actually driving down the street; I really didn’t figure they would even bother. I was even more shocked when the officer just drove by and did nothing! I saw at least a half dozen people need to detour off the sidewalk because of this car, a few of them opting to take the blind leap onto the road and potential oncoming traffic.
Just another sign that the car does truly rule in America.
