Democrats have a tendency to implement policies that bring about massive failure and destruction, notably in short time periods. Right now, the main issues facing the party are wokeness, wasted money on frivolous pet projects, and leaders who refuse to be honest about the legitimate harm they’re causing.
One city that’s now bearing the consequences of failed leftist leadership is none other than Chicago, Illinois.
Chicago has been under the thumb of various Democrats for years on end. Even as the community gets worse and more dangerous, city residents still refuse to vote Democratic leaders out of office.
It’s for this reason that Chicago has a disaster on its hands when it comes to its parking meter situation, according to BetterGov.
Chicago has sold their parking meter revenue in advance for 75 years and got a lousy deal. https://t.co/rK96UoMmrh

Right now, it’s come to light that the city’s effort to nickel-and-dime its parking meter expenses comes with consequences.
As the parking meters in Chicago subsequently run into problems, such as combusting when the temperature outside drops, the following cities are rethinking their own approaches to parking meter investments:
- Los Angeles
In fact, Indianapolis’ tollway isn’t even American-owned, which can lead to a separate set of problems on its own.

Because of issues like busted parking meters, crime, and growing costs of living, more people are moving out of Chicago and even refusing to visit the area. At this rate, the city’s decline doesn’t seem like it’s going to get better anytime soon.
Democratic leaders in the community have talked a good game about wanting to improve things for the locals. Yet, when push comes to shove, negative, destructive policies continue to be put into action, rather than constructive decisions that will actually improve the city.
Other left-wing communities that are considering taking Chicago’s approach to parking meters and tollways would do well to reconsider before it is too late.
