    I think someone needs a remedial math lesson. This article says that the DC government takes in $11million while issuing 1.5 million tickets. That's about $7 per ticket. Is it really $111 million? You don't have to park in DC much to know that the issuance of parking tickets is the DC government's core competency. That $11 million number just jumped off the page as wildly wrong.
    A major point of the article is clearly incorrect.
