Loyal “06880” reader Chip Stephens passes along 3 point to ponder:
- Why is this truck parked in Parker Harding Plaza 24/7/356, when the rest of the world gets tickets after 1 or 2 hours — and there are signs saying “No Overnight Parking”? The truck is there when we leave after dinner at Acqua, and still there when we go to Starbucks to wake up. Never a ticket. What’s up?
- Westport is praised for banning killer grocery bags. In fact, the New York Times has praised it in many articles. So it’s strange that hundreds of Timeses are delivered to Westport every morning in plastic bags (double bagged in the rain). A double standard, wouldn’t you say? And I won’t even comment at the plastic bag dispensers at the parks and beaches for preserving biodegradable doggie poop.
- The fastest non-highway speed in Westport is 35 mph. The signs say it’s so; the weekly wrecks say otherwise. But try to do the speed limit in town. You’ll get tailgated, and the finger. If, that is, the driver isn’t already complaining to someone on his or her cell phone.
