The number of parking citations issued by the city of New Orleans on Mardi Gras parade days this year 


Did New Orleans parking enforcement officers seem particularly zealous this Carnival season? Consider this: In 2015, the city issued 22,475 parking citations on parade days. This year, the number of tickets jumped by almost 15,000.

  It wasn't all bad news — booting was down in 2016 (553 last year, 301 this year), as was towing (799 last year, 541 this year). Still, that made little difference if you went off to a parade and came back to find one of the city's familiar orange envelopes under your windshield wiper. Laissez les bon tickets rouler.
