Moline giving warnings for first-time parking violators

MOLINE -- Quad Cities drivers will soon see some changes coming to downtown Moline.

Drivers will now get a free pass for their first-time parking violations.

The changes come after complaints from businesses about how a new parking enforcement program was handing out too many tickets.

Other changes include the elimination of space-jumping violations and an allotted 15-minute grace period for drivers parked in three-hour parking spaces.
