  1. Abq needs parking wars meter maids. They can drive around the city giving out tickets and booting cars. They have them in Philly.

  2. The Supreme Court has ruled that having a for sale sign in your car parked on a public street is freedom of speech. So as long as the car is parked legally is not against the law to have a for sale sign in the window. And curbstoning is only applicable to people who are selling more than the state mandated maximum vehicles per year if it is your personal vehicle it is not considered curbstoning.
