I don’t agree with much of what Richard Morin writes for Crosscut but he sure is right about parking on arterial streets. I’m baffled by the fact that some of our arterials still allow parking — North 50th St through Wallingford comes to mind — either all day or outside of “rush hour” which is such a quaint notion in today’s economy as to be useless. There’s nothing quite like tooling along in the right-hand lane only to see a parked car right in front of you!
