“Please park on the driveway or park lawfully in the street ma'am."

"Okay."

"Thank you."

Lots all over the city of Tulsa, just like this one are being carved with tire marks.

It's a priority for the city to fix because it's...

"Detracting from the appearance and the value of the neighborhoods."

Legally residents must park on a concrete or asphalt driveway, or in a garage.
While the city has been lenient on the issue in the past today was an example of its new plan.

"We are going to change our actual overall process where the warnings are not going to be sent."

Bibiana Garcia received warnings in the past, and was understanding of her ticket today, but says she weighs the pros and cons.

"We can't park on the street because we live on the corner, and we don't have any other option, i mean if we do we have the risk of getting hit."

"Bibiana avoids parking in the street because she doesn't want to get hit. It can be an honorable excuse, but some people have all the room in the world to park on their driveway, and they still choose to park in the lawn."

Whatever the excuse may be, Tulsa neighborhood services wants the word to get out to start being conscious of the law before you have to learn the hard way.

"We won't be parking there I guess, we'll be parking in the street, because we don't have the money to be paying tickets all the time."

When the yard is soft enough that you sink deep enough to break a water line then you will understand why you should not park on the lawn.

IF you are really concerned about detracting from the appearance and the value of the neighborhoods, then you should work on getting rid of illegal aliens, NOT keep punishing actual U.S Citizens.....
