Meter Maids

Traffic violations officer Tania Ledesma became legendary as a meter maid for South Miami police. In a 1985 profile, Herald writer Francine Barron wrote: “Walking for eight hours in Florida heat and thunderstorms, rarely taking a break, shouldering the abuse from outraged citizens who arrive at their cars an instant too late, Ledesma is intimately acquainted with the perils of the parking violations officer. She loves her job.” Other meter maids also found reasons to smile sometimes.
