Mt. Tabor Way. October, 2017. By Surfer. Special to Blogfinger.

From Suffering Surfer:    During the summer, I occasionally drove high up (to the summit) of Mt. Tabor and saw a reserved spot. It’s not near my home or I would talk to the person about his/her selfishness. If the person is physically handicapped, then he/she should apply for a special place. I took this picture Tuesday at 1030 am. Apparently, the person still reserves a spot on weekdays in October.
This is what I call a VIP: Very Inconsiderate Parker.

 

EDITOR’S NOTE:  Surfer, as Mickey and Sylvia say, “Love is Strange.”   Our parking problems will never be solved with perfection until the number of cars allowed into town are less than the number of parking spaces.  There are solutions, but none that have been welcomed  with enthusiasm.

The only passable possible solution is to give some preference to those of us who live here (full, part-time and renters) using a system of permit parking.  Since all of us who live here are currently using a certain number of spaces,  giving a preferential nod to us will not decrease the number of spaces for others as has been alleged by naysayers.

But we are done entertaining solutions here. Let the Groaners continue to flail around —getting nowhere.

And by the way, for those who allege that we don’t have parking problems here  (Jack Green said on Facebook that there are only about 18 days at peak season when there is trouble parking), the season extends from May through October  (a full 6 months.)

Just last Saturday, October 7, 2017, there was parking gridlock due to the thousands in Asbury for Zombie Day and the Harvest Festival crowd in the Grove.  Even Zombies and pumpkin sellers are on an equal footing with Grovers in seeking parking spaces.

Anyhow, we have been collecting photos from the “parking wars,” so keep them coming, just for the Heck Avenue of it.
