I love this time of year - on the one hand MADD and the police encourage drivers to make the smart choice and take a cab home if they may have had some "Christmas cheer,", but on the other hand there is no place where the driver is permitted to leave his/her car.

I would hope that the city does not ticket those residents who live on the 100 Block of Princess Street East and Ferguson Street betweeen Princess and King Street who have to park their cars on nearby side streets due to the road construction. If I was one of those residents who gets a parking ticket, I would take it down to City Council and embarrass the council for ticketing their cars when it is the city who has screwed up in getting the road construction done in late fall.

If you do manage to leave your car in a private lot and walk home, you're still not out of the woods. Walk very, very straight. These days, the cops are quick to throw you in a cell overnight for public intoxication.
