An alert “06880” reader — not the same one who wrote yesterday about the towing of cars during last weekend’s Blues, Views & BBQ Festival — emailed this morning:
I was at Saugatuck Elementary School around 7:30 p.m. tonight. Parking was terrible. A PAL football practice was just ending, and Back To School Night was going on. The 2 events overlapped by about 30 minutes. Clearly, Saugatuck Elementary is not intended for that quantity of vehicles.
Nonetheless, there was legal parking on the street. People had to walk a bit, though.
What surprised me was the number of cars that drove over curbs to park on lawns, regardless of sprinklers. The amount of double-parked cars, cars parked clearly where no parking existed, in fire lanes and crosswalks was astonishing.
I even saw a Range Rover blocking in a Maserati. At least the Range Rover left its flashers on.
