Jann Todd: Burned by parking in Breckenridge

My family and friends have enjoyed coming to Breckenridge for the snow sculptures and in the summer for years. We’ve always eaten out, done shopping, etc. This is the last year we’ll be doing it thanks to the parking police. They hide the three-hour parking signs behind Christmas ribbons and amongst other signs. They are not clear if it is three-hour parking in this one site or the entire block. I got a ticket and appealed it and of course they made me pay it.

I felt treated like trash and that my business to Breckenridge was not wanted or needed. I hope a lot of other people feel the same way and will stop coming to Breckenridge. I’m sure in our economy that the shops must love the loss of business due to this type of treatment by the police. In other towns, they make it clear if there’s a parking limit by putting something such as “This Side of Street,” “This Block, From Here to Corner,” etc., and the signs are large enough to see and on a post by themselves. A lot of towns also do not give tickets for overtime parking during special events. So thank you, Breckenridge Police. You’ve saved us hundreds of dollars by not wanting our business. We will happily go someplace else for our fun.
