For a few years now, New Yorkers have had to pay the meters on Sundays. No more, reports Clarified, due to some wacky religious decision by the City Council. She focuses on the fact that other religions celebrate their Sabbath on days other than Sunday and that meters should be free on those days too. I think Bloomberg just got one step closer to re-election. One of the gripes I heard from people during Bloomberg’s term was that they were being nickled and dimed all the time, and meters on Sundays was a classic example of this. Now, no more meters on Sundays. And if you think Bloomberg isn’t getting the credit, despite his opposition to the plan, you’re not paying attention.
