The absurdity of SF's parking ticket-dispensing habits aside, this is awful.

A year ago, we saw a couple of altercations on Valencia Street, with vile douche bags puffing up their flaccid feathers at hard-working meter maids (meter-men? parking attendants?), but we had no idea that this was getting physical, increasingly so.

NPR also claims that the California Assembly plans to "double the maximum fine for assault on parking enforcement officers."

Thanks to one of our tipsters for the info.
