Why Are People Parking In Front Of Houses Of Worship When It's Clearly Not Legal To Do So?
Parkazine Reader Berl recently emailed us this question: "I'm continually astonished that people going to church can "legally" park in spots clearly marked as No Parking all over the place during church hours. Talk about separation of church and state! Why does worship all of a sudden give you the right to park where you please?"
a great question and the answer holds true for cities big and small all over the country.
Technically, if a spot is marked 'no parking', then the mere fact that
a church or other House of Worship is active at a given moment doesn't make it legal to park there.
Since people are doing it and getting away with it, I can only guess
that the church in your town has made some arrangement with either local or state officials.
Worshippers have been known to receive parking tickets, so it wouldn't surprise me if one day (perhaps after a small change in government leadership), you see tickets on those cars. Always park safe and follow the regulations on the signs!
New Parkazine Feature - Your Weekly Alternate Side Parking Planner
David from The Bronx emailed us this great suggestion: "You know what would be great? If you guys sent out an email alert on the day before holidays when alternate side parking rules are suspended. Yes, I have the list, but I usually find out about the obscure holidays the morning after I park a mile away to avoid the bad side."
Thanks, David, for this idea. We won't be able to send out the alerts daily, but from now on, we'll include a weekly planner so that you'll know the Alternate side of the Street NYC parking schedule for the upcoming week:
Tuesday, 2/12/08: Alt side rules suspended :-)
Wednesday, 2/13/08: Alt side rules in effect
Thursday, 2/14/08: Alt side rules in effect
Friday, 2/15/08: Alt side rules in effect
Saturday, 2/16/08: Alt side rules in effect
