At almost every private business, the parking for customers is the closest and the parking for staff is the farthest away. As I was paying my
extortion fees property taxes upon registering my car in a new state, I realized that here at the DMV, the closest spots are reserved for the staff and the “customers” are relegated to walking as far possible.
Granted, the parking lot had plenty of handicapped parking close to the door. Of course that part of the lot was completely empty.
The actual difference in number of feet walked by each person to the building doesn’t matter so much as how this arrangement is reflective of government’s attitude towards chattel (that’s you).
