The Seattle Neighborhood Parking Problem
In many Seattle neighborhoods, off-street parking sucks. The situation is worse when people:
- park on the street more than 3 days
- park too close to driveways, making it difficult to enter and exit streets.
When you have issues like those described above, help is a phone call away. Contact the Seattle Authority to get some justice, and keep those streets just a bit safer.
