You know this isn't Paris, because there are no metal posts along the sidewalk to enforce this rule. This car, despite the admonition above it, has been parked on the sidewalk in front of the auto rePAIR shop for as long as I've lived in Seattle. I notice new graffiti behind it and some new city sidewalk improvement markings near the front tire. I wonder if it will have to start minding the absolute rule once pavement repairs commence? Well, with the new snows, it is probably best that this old baby stays put, anyhow.
Post Script: Maybe someone at the garage saw this, because when I was in that area today (12-3) there was a red car in this one's place--the first time I'd noticed any change since July! MarQueen+garage Seattle+auto+repair Queen+Anne+Seattle Seattle+sidewalkSeattle+street+scene
