Del Mar has the most restrictive parking facilities of any city in San Diego County. How about easing the burden of a parking ticket? Perhaps a note to accompany the parking ticket, i.e.: “Sorry about the ticket, but Del Mar, as the smallest city in San Diego County, has unusual municipal expenditures, i.e. beach maintenance, lifeguards, landscaping, etc. Perhaps we can minimize the economic impact of your ticket. We are enclosing some coupons for local restaurants as well as a brochure about Del Mar. Please come visit us again.”
Just a thought...
