the violations on the streets of DC are created by the same drivers every day in the same way...
so many of these drivers are professional drivers
if we could "curb" the double parking
if we could reduce the parking in the bike lane
why do we accept this unacceptable behavior
Fed Ex and UPS have a delivery strategy
but really... I do not think that we should accept the unacceptable
why do we allow them to drive and park the way that they do
would you rather have less traffic and safer streets or your package delivered in 24 hours?
that is a rhetorical question
do not answer that
Delivery Drivers... not just Fed Ex and UPS have a tenancy to double park or park in the bike lane even if there is an open space along side the curb
Why does our system enable this behavior?
If there is an excess of daily deliveries to a certain area then maybe there needs to be a DELIVERY ZONE
when I lived in Mount Pleasant I suggested this to DDOT
and the DDOT representative was dumbfounded.... "a delivery zone in a residential neighborhood?"
yes... and why not?
get the delivery truck out of the road
that is a simple concept
if we could just REDUCE the DOUBLE PARKING and the PARKING IN THE BIKE LANE
well.. reduction would be a start
