Damn. Why weren’t we told?
This past Friday was international Park(ing) Day. Thousands of people in Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Seattle and other cities spent the day occupying street parking spaces by setting up lawn chairs or pingpong tables to prevent cars from parking. The stated purpose was a protest of car culture and lack of urban greenspace, but the primary impact of Park(ing) Day seems to have been to make drivers even more stressed out.
One assumes those pingpong tables and lawn chairs were transported by bicycle. By the way, I’m no expert or anything, but don’t non-parked cars consume more precious earthly liquids than cars of the parked variety?
