October 24 update: My two-way street project and how you can help.
I've paid to have 125 of these simple two-way sheets printed. My dime. You can buy me a beer some time.
They are intentionally wordless, but there is space to add a message if desired:
"Two way me, baby"
"There's more than one way to drive"
"In NA, we like it both ways"
Maybe just, "We Support" or "In Favor"
What I'll be doing in the coming days is trying to get as many of these as possible in downtown business windows. I'll be starting on Pearl Street. See if you can guess why. By the way, here's an anecdote shared by a friend.
My co-worker wanted to buy the book being sold at Endris. We pulled up on Pearl right by Endris. A woman parked a SUV right outside their door and waited, Jean came outside and they began to go through the stuff in the woman's van. We waited, Jean crossed the street like one north west spot and put stuff in her own SUV. We asked if the lady was gonna move but noooo, they had more stuff to go through. My rambling point is this ... downtown merchant ... councilman ... opposed to 2 way ... taking up at least two parking spots for themselves on the short block of Pearl between Spring and Market. WTF.
