    Please post comments on that Press Telegram story (it’s easy). Politicians read their local papers. It’s also a chance to speak to a different, more general audience than you see on Streetsblog.

    Take the debate to the people!

    Didn’t you guys have major floods just a few weeks ago? Is there nobody in the readership in these papers who understands why parking lots are bad for flood risk????

  • Chewie,

  • Im finally going to get a drivers license, and was doing the practice test online, which reminded me of this website:

    6. It is illegal to park your vehicle:
    In an unmarked crosswalk
    Within three feet of a private driveway.
    In a bicycle lane

    Why is parking legal in a bike lane (unless posted otherwise)?
