One set of patrolmen, when asked, did move to request idling drivers to shut motors and one in a bus stop to move, but another officer, a block away, said that he granted permission to at least one driver to park in a No Standing zone "because they have no where else to go". When I told him about the parking lot, he said "but that would cost money!" He said he was OK with the others parking nearby.....
