The recent blizzards in the central plains and the northeast have caused the cities to institute parking bans. Since I’m from Southern California where the snow we get falls in the form of rain, I have little understanding of such things. However I can assume that the reason is so the snow plows can get through and clear the snow from the streets. It makes perfect sense.When there is six feet of snow drifted up on the streets, how would a plow know if there is a car there or not?
My question, and perhaps some of my avid readers can answer this, is Where the heck do people put their cars when a snow day ban is on?
I guess it goes further than that. If there are places to put your cars when it snows, what about the rest of the year? People complain about on street parking availability, but during snow bans, they find somewhere to park, don’t they?
OK, OK, I know that winter can be hell, I mean we are going through a major storm here in LA right now, may get up to an inch of rain and it will close many intersections, but I digress…I just seems to me that there can’t be much of a parking problem if people can find places to put their cars off street during a snow storm.
