Parking...'Excuse me sir...could you bend over that barrel?'


Just received this in my email from the Warriors....

 Please note that the City of Oakland has implemented a MANDATORY parking tax on ALL events being held at Oracle Arena and the Oakland Alameda-Coliseum, which regrettably includes all Golden State Warriors home games. It marks the first parking tax instituted since the opening of the original sports complex in 1966.

Due to this city mandate – effective as of January 1, 2010 -- the Warriors have been forced to increase parking rates at Oracle Arena from $15 to $18 per game. We regret this city-imposed action and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that it will cause to our valued fan base who regularly attend Warriors home games. The increase marks the first in individual parking rates since 2005. 

Sincerely,

Golden State Warriors

Soooooooooo... paying $15 was not bad enough!?!?!

$18 to park....ahhh hell, why not go the whole hog and make it easier for the attendents and call it a square $20!?!

A $3 parking tax for a 'great time out' in the current economic climate smacks of a city in desperate need of cash, tapping the obvious easy target...the car owner that does not wish to use Bart or it is not practical to use Bart....

May I suggest that the city of Oakland reviews the sheer number of bureacrats and paper pushing Idle OAFS! claiming a fat salary for doing very little and getting rid of them, before they start hitting people with yet another robbery tax who are frankly taxed enough!!

Very very poor!
