Steve, this may be the first time I agree with you.

The thing I like best about the ordinance that restricts parking across the sidewalk, is they approved the building of driveways that are not able to fit 2 cars without crossing the sidewalk. Houses with garages that can"t fit a car and then when it snows you can't park in the street. Then they give a ticket if you are across the sidewalk. Crazy!

Good to see that is a possibility.
