Just a friendly heads-up…there will be parking patrols out and about five points issuing citations. Not necessarily tomorrow or on Wednesdays at all, but some folks are parking illegally, and parking enforcement is going to be stepped up. Here is a link to the parking codes, but the ones that I want to highlight are about intersections. There are two rules about intersections you may not be familiar with:
you cannot park…
c.Within thirty feet of a crosswalk at an intersection,
d.Within thirty feet upon the approach to any flashing signal, stop sign, yield sign or traffic-control signal located at the side of a roadway,
There is no doubt that I have parked within 30 feet of a stop sign before. So be aware of this regulation! 30-feet may seem like a lot, but it will make intersections around the 5 points area much, much safer – for both vehicle and pedestrian alike.
Note: This increase in parking enforcement is not because of us, and it was nice of the neighborhood association to give us a heads up before tickets just started appearing on our cars…
East Nashville Tomato 5k
Our home race is coming up on August 9. This is not just a race for our potato to tomato graduates, but a race which we all need to support! This Wednesday the YMCA will be out with information about how to sign up.
6 a.m. or 6 p.m. at the corner of 11th and Holly. If you are a run/walker, meet up with the Lasty Nasties at 5:45. Check out the construction as we run around LP field…our riverfront is going to be amazing.
