Parking big problem on Morgan St., NL

As a resident of Morgan Street, I am confident I speak for many. Morgan Street is a residential street first and foremost, not a commercial, or employee parking lot for the business enterprises that abut this street. Those of us who reside here are forced to park our vehicles away from the homes we pay the taxes on. Our homes are also at risk should emergency personnel be required.

Illegal parking near fire hydrants, corners and driveways hamper regular vehicles; imagine maneuvering a 60-foot fire truck. Complaints to city government have led to false promises about worn and improper signage being replaced. Police say call when we see a problem; wouldn't it be easier if they just drove by daily and issued tickets?

Apparently business owners these days don't mind the negative impact their employees give their image by the disrespect they bestow upon their neighbors.
