Untaggable and unacceptable parking reality

Posted by Skippern on 2 January 2015 in English (English)

I live in a tourist town, a town that in its sleepier time of the year hardly have parking enough for the commercial downtown area to function, let alone when 300.000+ tourists invade the city for new year.

Take a look at the picture below. This is taken from my office window late on the 1st of January. The majority of the parking madness have left.

Caotic Parking Conditions

The yellow square shows the last of 5 cars parking in a space large enough for 3, it is not signed as a parking area.

The blue square shows a car parked in front of a garage, but what a direction? Breaking pattern?

The red square shows a car parked on the sidewalk, there where up to 6 cars parked like this during the day, and I counted a total of 20 cars parked like that.

Doesn't seem to help calling the police to remove illegal parked vehicles, they are too busy doing that 200 meters down the road (in front of the banks and restaurants), and politicians doesn't care much since these tourists are bringing in money to fill their pockets.

The mayor only wants tourists that spends a lot of money so that he can fill up with money he can use to sniff cocaine or whatever he is doing, don't think he like the population much either, the only thing he have done in 2 years was to move a few bus-stops.
