I don't understand people who park on sidewalks

Near my son's school, every day a few special people think it's perfectly acceptable to park directly on the sidewalk, forcing the girl child and I to trudge through 20 feet of... well, not sidewalk. It's not the worst thing that ever happened, but it's annoying, particularly because it's really never OK to park on a sidewalk. I suppose if you came wheeling up to an emergency room with someone who was spewing blood or baby and there was nowhere else to park, then, maybe it would be acceptable. MAYBE.

Here's a graphic to help you sort it all out.

If the sidewalk is the only place available for you to park your car, then there is no place to park your car. Park elsewhere.

P.S. If you knew how long it took me to come up with that graphic, you'd feel sorry for me. 

Search Amazon.com for anything


  1. Love this! I was a traffic volunteer at my girl's school for 8 years & beleive me that stuff I saw parents do was amazing - there are always those folks that are more special than the rest :) - Carrie

  2. Thanks! Yes, it's scary what the poor crossing guard deals with. I can't believe more of them aren't hit.

  3. Something I learned in LA: As long as you turn on your hazard lights, you can park anywhere you want. Really. It's the law, I think.

    So you can just save your fancy graphics, Brenna.

  4. LOL! Well, I don't think we have that law here. :)
