Shame is the name of the game

Here in NYC they sweep the streets every week.  There is a schedule posted, and on cleaning day you have to move your car.  Usually we just double park on the other side of the street until the cleaning hours end, and then we move it back. 

On our street they clean between 8:30 and 10:00 a.m. on Mondays.  If you don’t move your car you can get a ticket.  You might not get caught. 

But…there is another punishment, and shame is the name of the game!  They stick this sign on your car window.  I think it must be hard to get off because I have seen several half-removed stickers.  The glue must be pretty strong!  They really want to shame you into following the rules!


That’s right…it’s all this guy’s fault.  The street is still dirty, and we know who to blame!
