Exactly right ,. This is another reason they do not provide adequete & suffcient parking for cabs in places where Taxis are needed & that's where Eos, Sharkeez & other establishments that serve alcoholic beverages are located . They make lots of money off of DUI'S . Just check out the tow trucks anxiously waiting for their next DUI bust while parked on, Cota Street( parked illegally in Taxi stands by the way & the tow truck drivers will never get cited ) Friday & Saturday night . This is not about safety, it's all about money . $$$$$$$$ .

Ps - this is not an issue of fire hydrants while pulling forward in your Taxi . This is an issue about the Officer lying under oath & issuing an unwarranted citation for doing something that never happened . This is also an example of cabbies having no sensible places to park done intentionally by the City for generating money from some of the poorest working people in, Santa Barbara . Issuing a fire hydrant ticket or red zone violation is another example of how the City is extorting money from cabbies . Read the article again .

Guess we'll have to cite the hundreds of other drivers for impeding while temporarily stopped in front of the fire hydrant, too since that's how many cars stop there while waiting for the light to turn green, heh ? What does that have anything to do with time limits in Taxi zones or the City failing to provide sensible Taxi stands ( in front of Sharkeez / Eos, for example ) in order to serve the public ? Nice try .
