Lone parking enforcer crosses Oakland, Calif., picket line

OAKLAND, Calif., July 2 (UPI) -- A meter enforcer crossed a picket line in Oakland, Calif., and issued tickets to drivers who may have thought a strike meant parking was free.

The Oakland parking enforcement officer was spotted issuing parking tickets Monday while 3,500 other part-time city employees staged a one-day strike following the expiration of their contracts Sunday, the Oakland Tribune reported Tuesday.

City workers earlier sent out notices to residents saying there would be "no parking enforcement" due to the strike Monday, but the worker, who declined to give his name, said he did not support the strike because he felt he was paid well.

Sean Maher, a spokesman for Mayor Jean Quan, confirmed one meter enforcer had decided to work Monday. He did not say whether the tickets would be forgiven.
