Breckenridge, Law School instructor and resident of 108 Pickard Lane, charged that "Enforcement of traffic regulations on Pickard Lane-leaves everything to be desired,. , In his 400-word letter, Breckenridge charged that "some cars have violated the regulations; several times a day for the last six months a hundred or more violations for a single car." He added that "improper parking has always been bad here; driv ing through in thp wrong direc tion is getting worse." "I do not mean to suggest that most citizens are at fault," he con tinued. "The violations are prin cipally by certain members of fraternities in this vicinity, and they are repeated, persistent, and intentional." "... If those charged with en forcement of the law are incapa ble of enforcing it better than this, or are unwilling to do it, they should frankly confess that fact to the aldermen and ask that the ordinances' be repealed. This unedifying farce . . . ought not to continue." Breckenridge claimed that at a comparitively deserted time, of five cars parked on the street, two were parked in the wrong direction and one had been stored on the street for nearly four months, "taking up parking space which is often at a premium."
