As awful as bullying a single driver over a citywide problem is, there's an Easter egg hiding in this video that makes it even more heinous. Here, check out this shot from the beginning:

What do you make of that black car parked there? For one thing, unlike the FedEx driver, it's double-parked. It's also parked in the same lane of traffic that the mayor is so valiantly protecting. So ... why isn't he mad about that car? Okay, everyone say it with me: Because it's probably his car!
You see it again at the end of the video, when the FedEx driver has to pull around it, thus disturbing an additional lane of traffic. So here's an obvious question: If this video was enough to get the Fedex driver ticketed, shouldn't it also be enough to get the driver of the Cadillac ticketed? The license plate is visible in that last shot ...
How busy can that street really be if you're standing in the middle of it shooting YouTube videos?
... so determining who it belonged to at the time shouldn't be impossible, right?
