For several years now there has been an ongoing debate about long-term parking of vehicles on our city streets. Though, it is apparently illegal under state law, our city has chosen not to enforce this law. Instead, the city provides free storage on our city streets for our residents.
The neighborhood where I live has very wide streets. When the issue was brought to my attention, I thought it was a nitpicky one. Our streets, I thought, have plenty of room on them to allow it. Yes, it sometimes gets a bit trashy looking, but hey, we need to live and let live, right?
