The Atlanta Braves Borrowed Their Parking Scam From Dan Snyder

Last week, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that the Braves had quietly asked for and received new traffic ordinances from Cobb County lawmakers. The Accessory Special Event Parking rule, which is among those edicts, bans all privately owned parking lots near the team’s new stadium from operating on game days when it opens next season.

There will be no public transportation to the stadium, so people will have to drive, and park, and the rule effectively stipulates that only the team can make money on parking. The AJC story held that the there was “no public discussion of the parking ordinance beyond the title being read into the record.”

The Braves issued a statement saying that they’d asked for the statutory parking monopoly for “the safety of the fans.”
