    The Miro statute really does deserve a better spot, but I definitely get the irony that the only people really losing a view of it are people driving down Washington, which means they’re largely ignoring it anyway.

    “Flyers Ask Drivers to Park Close to Other Cars…” One of the best “heard on the street” exchanges I’ve seen involved bumper to bumper parking.

    Owner of car standing outside a bar sees a man gently bump her a car a few times while parallel parking. Woman says to man when he gets out of his car, “Hey, that is my car!”. Man then says to woman while looking at her car, “Good thing it has a bumper” then proceeds to walk into bar. Don’t drink and drive, kids!

    Gotta say, it irks me when I see a driver park 2-3 feet from the end of a parking zone or in the dead center of a space that is clearly big enough for two cars. Just pull all the way up!
