A reader sent this in who received the above note on their car over the weekend.
“I don’t know who you are but I shoveled out this spot and Park here in Front of my house everyday. It’s not very nice that every times I move you park here. I am 7 months pregnant and have to walk two blocks in the Ice because your are in my spot.”
Miss you do not own a spot, you do not own the street. Just like I don’t own a spot in front of my house. That being said I feel for you, I also had to walk two block from my house. Just like everyone else in the city. My block has a lot of snow and a lot of “reserved parking” with cones. Then, when I went to park on Seba avenue I forgot that it is filled with mostly DIRTBAGS who are leaving chairs and garbage cans to protect “their spots”. Never-mind that they own multiple cars, never-mind that they are drunk a-holes, never-mind that would damage your car or my car in a second on a normal day for parking our cars there. Nevertheless I was forced to venture out and I parked on the street, which was kind enough to not have cones, which turned out to be in front of your house. I won’t get into the fact that we all have health problems and the fact that ice is dangerous no matter what age or status. However, if you were able to dig out, and you are comfortable enough to drive, I am sure you are healthy enough to walk two blocks.
Also it’s you’re not your.
This is one of many reports GerritsenBeach.net is getting about notes being left being left on cars.
According to NYC Traffic Law, Section 4-08 (7), it is unlawful for anyone to reserve a parking space. The law goes on to list every which way you can reserve a space – we will spare you – but it does say cones.
