There was an interesting article in yesterday's Oregonian about chronic parking offenders in downtown Portland. One particular UPS truck, mentioned by plate number, was the #1 offender with 262 tickets totalling $18,093 in the last 3 years. Of the top 10 offenders, 4 were specific UPS trucks with their plate numbers listed in the article. There is a chronic shortage of loading zones and the city doesnt want to lose revenue by making more, so they just bleed UPS dry with fines. At least the driver doesnt have to pay the ticket, UPS just writes it off as the cost of doing business.
