Angle parking

Resident says changes to parking downtown is a waste of money

Anyone who has ever tried backing out of angle parking knows that you cannot use your mirrors if your view over your shoulder in the direction of the oncoming one-way traffic is blocked by another vehicle and an accident is almost inevitable if another vehicle is coming along.

Who ever dreamed this idea up had best think again as it is a total waste of taxpayers’ dollars for any perceived benefit as most cities who have tried this incur more expense to reverse the angle parking back to parallel parking.

There are far more pressing things to spend taxpayers’ dollars on.

Please get back to the basics that the city should be concentrating on such as providing water at a reasonable cost, bringing sewer with such projects to fulfill promises to connect homes on septic fields and keeping roads in a good state of repair.
