What are they smoking in Simpsonville

Lets see, the Simpsonville City Council is considering banning all parking on city streets. Read about it here. The reason is that if people park on both sides of some narrow streets, emergency vehicles can’t get through, plus its difficult for street sweepers and snow removal. Also, some people actually park too close to the stop signs and corners.

Now the city has, according to this article, wrestling with this problem since 1994 and simply can’t figure out what to do.

Well, lets think about this for a nano second and see what could possibly be done.

1. They could institute alternate side of the street parking.

2. They could set up a series of parking rules and regulations (like parking in front of fire hydrants and too close to corners) and then enforce the rules.

3. They could set charging for parking to reduce the number of vehicles in certain areas.

4.  Oh well — you get the idea.

These folks have been studying the problem for 12 years and "We don’t know any other remedy."
