Parking Conspiracy Theories

An editorial in this week's East Hampton Star commenting on formerly unpopular new parking permits required at town beaches purports one of the more bizarre reasonings for why a number of parking spots have been available of late. (It certainly wasn't the permits, which have since raised a much needed $220,000.) We quote: 'Speculating here: Could it be possible that the new permit put an end to the reputed practice of buying used vehicles that have old, faded East Hampton Town resident parking stickers, thereby keeping the number of permits out there artificially high?'. We answer: Probably not. It has rained 21 of the 25 days of June. [EH Star]
