Self Defeating Parking Regulations

Latest example: a Carl's Jr. Restaurant on DeSoto & Lassen in the Chatsworth. All parking places are marked "20 minutes only".

Perhaps a new standard in fast food. Wait in line 10 minutes, attempt to swallow entire meal whole, call 911 for a Heimlich maneuver, and pay your parking ticket because the paramedics were too slow, or, if more likely, let your heirs pay it because you died.

Maybe not where to eat.

OK, I know. The parking places are marked so that under some obscure local regulation (enacted by the same reality-challenged people who go into politics everywhere), they can toss people out when they want to. But who wants to go someplace where that's on their agenda?
