It’s illegal for Downtown restaurants with valet parking to use cones to block spaces

Excellent investigative work by Richard Morgan of the Commercial Appeal, who found out that it’s completely, totally illegal for valet parkers at Downtown restaurants to use cones to block spaces. Each violation of a blocked public parking space is a $21 fine. The city has been missing out on that revenue. Hopefully the law will be enforced now that it has been clarified that the cones are clearly violations.
