A lot of this depends on the time of day and like you said, location.
Downtown is gonna have more parked cars so expect to see more parking enforcement.
Around 3 pm, expect to see more enforcement officers around busy streets that have no parking between 3 pm and 6 pm.
Same thing for tow trucks.
I was near GM place on Tuesday and saw a bunch of speeding tow trucks. Looked down at the clock and saw it was 5:55 and no parking for the Canucks game starts at 6 pm.
Also, some officers walk, while so drive around. Those that walk are going to be on busier beats while the driving ones will probably have more area to cover and might be around less so expect those officers to less likely chalk/pebble your tires.
Don't forget, enforcement officers eat lunch and take breaks too so expect to see less of them walking around at lunch time.
