In a move that will probably lead to some epic Facebook freakouts, the Baltimore City Council voted to start fining $250 to parents that snarl traffic by double-parking outside of city schools at pick-up and drop-off times The mayor intends to sign the measure into law.

The city council also voted against a change in the city charter that would make it easier for the council to override a mayoral veto. The proposal (which would’ve needed approval by voters) would have enabled a two-thirds vote by the council to override the mayor, instead of the three-fourths vote needed now. Most cities and states only require a two-thirds vote to override an executive veto.
