Trivia

Rapper Dolla Reed appeared on the first season. His staff gave "promotional Copies" of "Toast to this... And Then Came Reed" to staff behind cameras, saying that the album was "going to drop in February," and Dolla gave a signed copy to the main fellow (older male, parking authority lot attendant- who seemed quite tickled) as thanks for helping him get his van out. Despite some early success with his singles and modelling, unfortunately Reed was shot to death in 2009 before finishing his debut album. See more »

Parking officers have feelings, too.
13 September 2010 | by mike_cableSee all my reviews

The first thing that's clear about Parking Wars is that the often-hated parking officers are individuals with wonderful sense of humours and personalities who are just doing their job. They deal with so many angry citizens who didn't follow the rules that they agreed to by obtaining a driver's licence and owning a motor vehicle.

It's a fair system designed to maintain order, but many citizens don't see it that way, they make up their own rules. This is where the television show gets interesting and we see many "victims" who try to talk their way out of a fine and usually end up personally insulting the parking officer or wasting hours of their important lives arguing about small details at the vehicle impound center.

People yell obscenities from the sidewalk as the clamping van slowly drives by, checking each car's plate for outstanding tickets, as if it's a game. The officers inside the van seem to love it and are never surprised when someone will come running out of a house with some ridiculous story about why the tickets haven't been paid. They've heard it all.

A very entertaining show and highly recommended.
