      I believe writing a ticket for this infraction is an appropriate way to address this matter. Doing so will bring relief to the community and send a message that sliding-scale lawless behavior will not be tolerated.

      Grabbing some lunch, working on the computer, and taking a nap is
      different than parking overnight in a residential community. This is
      why there is a two-hour limit for residential parking, and the fact
      that residents have sent an email stating that this vehicle is always
      parked in the community gives us cause for concern. We have taken
      steps to address this vehicle by issuing tickets.
