From one angle, this looks like a very bad (and aggressive) parking job by the Jaguar. After all, why would the Nissan come so close — particularly on the driver’s side — to a car that was already there?
But take a look at this 2nd photo:
Maybe the Nissan driver pulled in after the Jaguar — and tried to send a message about parking in a crosswalk space.
If you’re the driver of either vehicle, click “Comments” to explain.
Though I won’t hold my breath.
If you had a tough time finding a parking spot downtown today, there are 2 reasons why:
- It was the 1st day of Sidewalk Sales. Shoppers swarmed outdoor tables, looking for bargains.
- The always-packed Brooks Corner lot was closed.
The only plausible reason for 2) above is 1).
But that makes no sense — unless the owner of the lot feared that, Westport drivers being who they are, they would carelessly plow into all those shoppers in front of Brooks Corner stores.
But — surprise! — there were fewer shoppers there than anywhere else on Main Street.
Can anyone guess why?
