CHATTANOOGA, TN. (Times Free Press) -- The new CARTA-supervised Chattanooga Parking Authority has issued more than 4,800 parking tickets downtown since taking over enforcement responsibility from police a month ago, according to Brent Matthews, CARTA's director of parking.

Subtracting Saturdays and Sundays, when parking meters are not enforced, that averages out to just over 208 parking tickets issued every day.

"They are a lot more regular in their patrolling, while before it was hit and miss," said David Smotherman, owner of Winder Binder Art Gallery and Bookstore on the city's North Shore.
