The next chapter in my fascination with parking around the city deals with the fiction of so-called "Compact" slots. You see them all over the place. If there are enough of them in a line, they equate to one more spot for the developer of the project. But it's fiction. Here is a Ford Explorer parked at Safeway--one of four SUVs that day in the line of "Compact" spots that face Howard Ave.
The woman who owns the Explorer was a little concerned as I snapped the photo, but once I told her how I feed my blogging hobby with them, she looked me in the eye and said "You are one interesting guy". Hey Cat, I hope you visit the Voice often.
If you want to revisit past parking posts look here, here and here for more entertaining shots. Oh, and I still have not seen more than one motorcycle in the 8 slots on the Avenue since that last post. 95% of the time all 8 slots are empty.
