. . .sometimes the darkness is your friend. ~Bruce Cockburn, Pacing the Cage
The entrance to an underground garage downtown made for an interesting abstraction. The average rate per hour for the 79,574 off-street parking spaces downtown last year was $6.50 USD. Unlike San Francisco where every square inch of curb space not painted red is fully utilized and double parking is an art form, here in Seattle one may not park within 5 feet of a driveway or within 30 feet of most corners with stop signs. Only delivery trucks presume to double park on the street, and the patience and politeness of Seattle drivers while waiting for someone to park at curbside is also decidedly unlike the short fuse of many a San Franciscan behind the wheel.
