By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Aug 19, 2014

~~<p><strong>QUESTION:</strong> There are a number of vehicles parked downtown at metered stalls, e.g., Richards Street, in which a placard saying &quot;Parking Permit for Government Business&quot; is placed on the dashboard. Can you determine how and why and on what basis these &quot;permits&quot; are being issued? Although I cannot say the vehicles are parked all day, I can say that the same cars, from the same department, seem to be there on a regular basis and stay for multiple hours.</p>
<p><strong>ANSWER: </strong>The photo you provided showed a placard that was issued by the city Department of Transportation Services to the state Attorney General's Criminal Division.</p>
