A local city is is giving security guards the authority to write parking violation tickets to cars illegally parked in the mall parking lot. Should mall security have this authority?

I'm ok with it but they can't have any authority over you besides you might not be allowed on the property if the ticket is still unpaid.

Yes I rolled down my window and cheered one-on when he was writing a ticket to some jerk was parked in handicapped parking.

Depends. They could go nuts and start ticketing people who are parked across the parking bay lines etc, or those child and family spaces which I think is overreaching.

But I'm fine with more ticketing of people in disabled bays without placards or those idiots who park at the red curb, outside the store doors and run in with their flashers on, blocking the dropped curb for wheel chairs etc.

Mall security should be able to call a tow truck, but under the current system, only cops should be writing tickets.

I get tickets from meter maids not the police so I'm not really surprised by this

Otherwise who cares. But who watches the watchers? Today a parking ticket. Tomorrow they get zapped for I descent exposure.

If I got a ticket from a mall cop - I would kick their Segway. Oh HELL no.

Give the guy a doughnut and call it a day. I've never gotten a parking ticket, and I certainly don't plan on getting one (especially not from a mall cop... No offense to them).

My sister is the head of a mall security team. She pokes fun at them all the time.
I'm only joking about most of what I said. I just don't think they should be allowed to hand out tickets. Sorry, Kay... It wasn't meant as a serious mention.

I cannot imagine you parking in the handicapped parking space. That's what they do here.

We've had the private parking authority here in Anchorage on and off over the years. There are pros & cons. Biggest pro: frees up real cops to do real cop business. Biggest con: parking nazis who stalk meters WAITING for them to expire
