Indianapolis city employees are abusing parking placards

An investigation by Tom Spalding and Heather Gillers of the Indianapolis Star has led to a policy change regarding special parking placards in Indianapolis. Some have been using the special permits, intended to help city employees complete quick downtown tasks, to park for hours at no charge. The abuse has negatively impacted downtown businesses, whose customers have no place to park. On Sep. 23, in response to the Star's ongoing investigation, Indianapolis Public Safety Director Scott Newman asked the Indianapolis City Council to draft an ordinance regulating permit use.
