Residents along Chenery Street in Glen Park have been perplexed in recent days to learn they live on a hill. Common sense would say the stretch just east of the canyon is flat, but when you’re talking about the Municipal Transportation Agency, common sense doesn’t always come into play.

Several residents have been shocked to receive numerous citations for $50 apiece for failing to curb their wheels when parked on the street, tickets they’ve never received before. There’s apparently a petition to fight the citations in the works and a pledge by some not to pay up.

    You know, it seems kind of lame to ticket for this, but on the other hand, if we curb our wheels every time we park then we won’t get a ticket, and our car won’t roll away.

      The problem is when the road is relatively flat it’s difficult to know which way to curb wheels…and frankly it’s not even necessary on a relatively flat road.
