I bet they're going to blame Arab terrorist for this instead of faulty electrical systems, just like they did in London on 7/7.

We have IEDs in the USA now, suspend the constitution, enable the TIA and send out the drones.

After seeing several people freaking out over the new electronic parking pay stations in my town I'm really surprised that someone hasn't gone ape shait and taken a baseball bat or wore to them. Just the other day I saw some guy arguing with a meter maid who was writing him a parking ticket because the slip the machine dispensed didn't print whatever info it was supposed to. She (the meter maid) didn't want to hear no nothing about no broken machines.

Bring back the old coin operated ones. Sometimes old school is better.

It only takes one exploding parking meter to ruin your entire day

But a gentle man can make your whole week.

Given the rise in parking the last 2 McGinn years, and the fact he took away free weekends when he realized he could squeeze us for another 3 million a year, I'd say you've got about 900,000 suspects.

I don't understand why parking meters get so much violence and speed cameras are treated mostly with indifference in America. Why don't these people put their anger and explosives to good use and generate an X-band EMP that would wipe out every radar gun on the East Coast?

I wonder who set the explosive device on the meter? Some other guy who set it and ran, just to have this random guy walk by, or this guy, who (maybe) just couldn't get away in time?

I saw that movie "The Butterfly Effect". I thought, "Wow, this is terrible. I wish I could escape to a place where this movie couldn't find me."

Well, the way to avoid a speed camera is don't speed. Parking meters are unavoidable if you want a decent parking spot in some places.
