    So I know with the amount of rain we have been having Parks & Rec are having a tough time keeping up with mowing, but its strange to see the medians along Hillcrest in reasonably decent shape, but in the same block the entrances to Preston Oaks and Hillcrest Highlands (Non-HOA subdivisions)...

    ZIP Cash invoices for cars you no longer own

Many know they can get free tollway use by leaving it registered to you. As soon as you sell the vehicle or turn in...

    DFW Parking

    DFW Parking

    I prefer to park on the airport and have never had any problems finding slots at remote North parking. I just don't like slepping my bags all the way to the front to catch the bus, so I now only use Express Parking where they come to my vehicle.

    NTTA Tolls for OOS (Out of State) plates

    A copy of this thread had been forwarded to NTTA for review. I'm sure they will be in touch as they dislike OOS'ers using our state's facilities without paying the required fees as much as I do. There is no free ride..... ;-)
