Burbank’s new permit system for oversized vehicles — requiring owners of RVs or even some raised pickup trucks to get a daily $5 parking permit on residential streets — is a solution in search of a problem.
Never mind that the City Council approved these cock-eyed rules before motorists could even pay for and obtain a permit online, forcing them to mail it to City Hall in advance or go in person.

The Leader, by the way, has its day in court late next week on the bonus issue. Stay tuned.
