When we worked for a newspaper in San Francisco, access to the beat-up company Toyota pickup with its city-issued press pass became a valuable commodity during the holiday shopping season — allowing us to park practically anywhere without fear of the DPT. Last time we checked, however, FedEx and UPS are not viable news agencies, and as such, they, along with other business in Sucka Free have set up monthly payment plans with the city fathers, allowing them to accrue as many tickets as they want without fear of towing as long as the money rolls into the nefarious agency's coffers. Ingenious.
