    I’m typically against rush hour parking restrictions because I find the “extra” lane tends to lead to dangerous, competitive driving.  Instead of a “keep right, pass left” scenario, you end up with the bulk of traffic using the left lane, and the right (formerly parking) lane becomes the de facto “tee-hee-hee lane”–used only when the occasional motorist gets tickled with the brilliant idea that, by erratically and aggressively passing other motorists on the right, they can save 1.7 seconds off of their trip.

    In this case, however, I have to chuckle:  A purveyor of alcoholic beverages is complaining that the city does not provide parking for the consumers of said alcoholic beverages.

    If a project is worth doing then it does not need incentives.

    Well of course if your rich then why spend your own money.

    I like how, in the article about the parking regulations on Roosevelt, people who got their cars towed due to posted parking regulations that have been in effect for 30 years are described as “unlucky”.
    It’s like parking regulations are a game, and it would be ludicrous to expect drivers to actually pay attention to signs and respect them.
