Meranda Cohn at Dallas City Hall sends word for those heading to the Red River Shootout on Saturday: Take the Green Line or at least park on Fair Park property, where spots are $10. But if you insist on parking off-site, in one of the privately owned lots where spots run upwards of $15, just one favor: Keep an eye out for these signs.
The city issued 250 of them before the State Fair of Texas, following new permitting procedures put into place shortly after last year's illegal-towing debacle. Cohn says they have been used twice: during the Cotton Bowl game in January, and since the start of the State Fair of Texas. And so far, she says, "there haven't been any incidents" similar to last year's. Also: Hook 'em.
