Building a better community every day!
Personally I have went to war against people parking on the sidewalk and street clearly posted with 'No Parking". This all started about 3 years ago as I was watching kids cross the TIB ( Tukwila International Blvd ) at S.140th St. Cars were being left on the side of the road in a "No parking" zone forcing cars to go around in a high traffic area with our kids in the middle.
Then as you come to the stop sign of S.140th St and TIB looking into South bound traffic you see cars parked on the side walk. Not only is this blocking the view of traffic but, it is putting more of the public in danger. Its UNSAFE not just for drivers, but our children having to cross over this street daily for school!
After doing what I could on my own I decided I needed help. I gathered some pictures (that took only 20 minutes to take) of the violations, set out to speak with our city council. After hearing my testimony and seeing the clear disregard's for our community, its children and safety action is being taken to step up code enforcement.
I want to thank the council members and Public Work Department for taking swift action in this matter. We can only hope we can do enough in time with out anything drastic happening to our neighbors. The war still goes on for a better community and public safety of us all.
