Mini vs. small parking spot

The old feud.  Who will win?  Parking in the Mission is a nightmare.  I had a car when I first moved to the neighborhood.  After my first week living here, I had amassed 3 parking tickets and quickly decided that having a car in the Mission is a luxury reserved for royalty and visiting heads of state.  Many years of bicycling later, I’m quite pleased with my decision, even if day trips to Point Reyes are a lot more difficult to pull off now.

    Day trips to Point Reyes are easy with a cheap rental (Rent-a-wreck are great) or a Zip car or whatever… it may feel expensive, but it is a lot cheaper than owning a car…

    My partner and I have had a car in the Mission for almost 4 years, street parking only. Have had 6 parking tickets, 1 towing & 1 smashed window. Nearly all of those in the first year before we’d gotten the hang of things.

    The parking situation here is terrible, but manageable if you’re patient, know how to read signs, and can deal with inconveniencing yourself now and then by either NOT moving the car on a certain day because you have too good a space, or having to walk 4+ blocks or get up early in the morning because that was the best space you could find.

    There are some interesting points in time in this article but I don’t know if I see all of them center to heart. There is some validity but I will take hold opinion until I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we want more! Added to FeedBurner as well
