We hear this over and over, year after year about parking scams downtown taking sports fans for an expensive ride.
Yesterday a man posing as a parking attendant told people they could park on the side of the ramp from the service drive along I-75 onto eastbound Gratiot.
That was wrong and, when the people came out of the game, their cars were towed.
Mallory Mangov contacted me asking for help.
She paid the guy $10 when he said the city is allowing parking here this year. She also got hit with a $45 parking ticket for illegally parking and a $215 towing bill.
The city controls parking downtown.
Lots must have a city license and attendants have to wear badges. Don't get scammed, look for the city licensing to make sure you're dealing with legitimate parking facilities.
