    Try that in downtown Columbus and let me know if you get a ticket.

    I do see a lot of the local subcontractors for Time Warner doing this though, even while parked in a parking spot.

    Anytime I have to go to the city I add a few bucks to the ticket for parking
    because you can never find a meter and if you do some Buck Nut will park you in then after you bump their car trying to get out the alarm will go off and you look like a fool trying to pull out with everyone laughing..........
    Im just saying ,,,,,,so I have been told .....
    I remember my first day,It was fun!

    Everyone knows us Buckeye fans are too poor to afford a car alarm.

    I have had a few close calls at the parking meters downtown but working on campus is the worst. Their traffic and parking nazis make any cities seasoned professional look like a girl scout.

    Most companies that employee a safety department have impleneted the cones around service trucks. One of the local AC Companies here used them. Your were supposed to place them far enough out to give you room to access all sides of the truck. To try and prevent accidents while you are getting a tool out of the street side of the vehicle.

    Cool cone

    They come in handy when you need access to the sides of your vehicle in a parking lot. Company policy is use them at your own discretion. Cones also work good when the parking person want to ticket you for backing into a park space. Properly placing cones makes your vehicle a construction site and unable to be ticketed,

    Did you know that moving somebody else's cone cones is illegal and a felony. We had a police officer move ours once and cause a mishap. The local OSHA filed charges. The police officer is no longer in law enforcement.

    If you put cones in the front and back of your truck in Manhattan , you would get a ticket on the truck and one for each of the cones.
