NICE, France (AP) The Riviera experiment with parking meters that almost forgive and forget has been a technical success but a hu- man disaster. The idea, which went into practice early this year, was this: stop giving out tickets for overtime parking and in- stead put little yellow cnve- lopcs marked "sorry" on windshields. Instructions on the envelope explained the driver would be given an extra hour free and the city would waive a re- duired court appearance if he put five the yellow packet and placed it in a red metal on the It? o! the parking meter. But instead of coins, there were oftcr. little notes placed in the envelopes: "You or "Die, parasite who picks on tiie or "Why don't you an honest job." The meter men com- plained, offended at the hale mail. There were enough people however, to fill the boxes with five-franc contributions to constitute an intolerable temptation for one zealou ily meier repairman. He vas caught doing overtime! repair work on the ral boxes when none was needed. Mayor Jacques Medccin ubsequently announced re- pairmen would be accom- janied by uniformed patrol- men. That was in May. Then in June, two meter men were arrested and sen- tenced for taking money out of the envelopes. They had been pocketing about 100 francs, or a day. All this made city officials despair. Their solution: Hire plam- clothesmcn to watch the parking meters, watch the parkers, and watch the meter men. Raft -trips to continue NIAGARA FALLS, Ont.
