.. so I was just towed for the second time in a week today ... it seems they are cracking down on any bikes that are parked within any expired meter zones - so that means no parking at the end of the block, like we all do.
You don't even have to be parked illegally - just at an expired meter. Saw them scoop up four bikes on my block - mine was already gone - this afternoon. (Howe/pender area) Had a nice, long, civil chat with a commissionaire, despite wanting to bash his head in, as to why the bikes were being towed.
Funny thing, though. They left all the scooters. fackers!
