Tigers to Tow Wilshire Parking Scofflaws

The mayor of our fair city of Los Angeles has earmarked a million bucks to test the Tiger Team. Tiger, which is a dorky acronym that stands for Totally Integrated Gridlock Enforcement Resources (we'd be worried if they were only Lightly Integrated) and consists of a fleet of tow trucks that descend on Wilshire Blvd when cars aren't supposed to be parked along it. If it works on Wilshire, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa says he'll expand the program to other bottlenecked thoroughfares around the city.
