So Oxford Triangle Venetians, not only is it impossible to park on our street , Stanford Ave, ( the spots are ALL taken by 9AM! ) but we now have a new problem to contend with. On Weds. morning when Charles couldn’t find a place to park he made the ‘mistake’ of parking in our driveway behind my car. We discovered shortly after when I went to get my car that he had been cited with a ticket for $68 for parking on the sidewalk ! In fact he wasn’t blocking the sidewalk as can be seen from the photo
This is not only infuriating but now will only add to the parking congestion if it’s ‘illegal’ to piggy back park in one’s driveway and more residents have to find street parking! Clearly the problem is made worse by people from local businesses, especially the boxing place on the corner of Stanford and Washington , residents of The Jefferson, patrons of Brennan’s pub, employees of businesses on Lincoln and neighbors who have 4-6 cars and trucks that are all parking on Stanford!
What can we do about this situation which is only going to worse? Is permit parking really not an option? Finding a place to park near to ones’ home is starting to feel like New York City !
