I think the increase in towing for violations on secondary streets is most likely an indication of sucess in getting the message across to people by agressive towing on primary streets. The tow trucks that used to haul off 8-12 cars every morning from Irving St. now only take 2-3 and so have more time for secondary streets.
Yes, it does still suck when you forget and get towed – but think of it this way. I used to watch ambulances and firetrucks stuck on Irving (the main emergency vechichle route) for 2-5 minutes because of illegal parking. That is a hell of a long time when your partner is having a heart attack or your house is on fire. A couple of years ago there was an enormous fire a couple of blocks from here, and I actually timed the firetrucks for 1:54 to go one block.
