City of Long Beach California tries Jeep Wranglers after years of GO-4’s for parking enforcement.

Reviews very mixed. Here is a clip from the article from the Long beach comber, issue 1/1/1900, author Steve Propes.

” Commuter J.D. Rose, who works in East Long Beach and has to contend with parking restrictions, has doubts about the new fleet of Wranglers. “Why not go with smaller, more fuel-efficient cars for parking enforcement? They’re not going to carry any passengers and they aren’t going off-roading They don’t have to use an SUV. They were working with a really small compact car, so why not just use a compact car.”

In fact, there are such alternatives to the Go4 or the Wrangler, such as the Smart Fortwo, which one critic described as “a skateboard with an engine” and the Honda Civic Hybrid, which is in use by the City of Toronto.

Recently, the City of Davis noted in the Go4, “the driver sits in the center to the vehicle enabling the officer to easily reach outside the vehicle to mark tires or to exit the vehicle to write citations. This is in contrast to conventional four-wheeled, right-hand drive vehicles, which have not proven as successful in downtown parking enforcement work.” ”

According to a CNBC article, Americans are now paying the most at the pump in seven years, the highest since at least October 2014.
