MILWAUKEE -- Now that the New Year is upon us, 2012 city of Milwaukee parking permits have expired. Many are making a mad dash to get updated parking permits to avoid getting stuck with a parking ticket.
Lines were long inside Milwaukee Police Department's District 2 police station on Wednesday, January 2nd -- filled with people waiting to pick up their 2013 parking permit.
Every procrastinator had a reason for why they waited until the last minute. 2013 parking permits have been for sale since mid-December.
"I work a lot and just didn't have the time to take care of it," Sam Lozoff said.
These permits allow drivers to park overnight on city of Milwaukee streets.
"It's worth the wait and it costs a couple dollars -- instead of paying hundreds and hundreds and then the tow lot. It's totally worth it," Lozoff said.
