Friday question of the day


zip car:flex car, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

I know we have had the bus/metro debate before but I have recently noticed the prime spots zip car and flex car have on Upshur near Domku. So my question is does anyone use zip car or flex car? Which is better? I saw that zip car was represented by a nice Toyota corolla while flex had a slightly more stylish Toyota matrix. How did they get such a sweet permanent parking spot? I have to admit, as a driver, it upsets me when I’m looking for parking spots and these two prime spots are permanently taken.

Bonus question of the day: Is jaywalking a serious problem in Petworth? Now, I jaywalk like the best of them but the difference between me and other jaywalkers I see in Petworth is that I don’t cross when I see cars, or if I see a car I run to get to the other side. I don’t know how many times I’ve seen people jaywalking, as though they were perfectly in the right, and nonchalantly cross New Hampshire or Georgia Ave, cars be damned. First of all it seems quite dangerous. Second of all it is quite annoying for drivers. Is this behavior related to our notorious double parking problem?
