From the Forum – No Parking Signs outside of Cardozo High School

No Parking Signs outside of Cardozo High School:

“I’m posting this to make others aware of the new no parking signs on Clifton St outside of Cardozo HS, and also ask if/where I can file a complaint about them.

I’ve lived in this neighborhood for 3 years (13th and Clifton), and have never had trouble finding parking. I parked, as usual, in the 1200 block of Clifton outside of Cardozo last week on a Sunday. When I went to use my car 3 days later, I had been ticketed 3 separate times for parking in a restricted zone. At some point between when I parked and when I got the first ticket, the city had posted no parking signs in front of Cardozo, decreasing parking on the street by at least 40%. The entire block is now restricted. To make matters worse, the no parking signs are tiny, do not specify restricted hours, and could be very easily missed by anyone (including those of us who have been residents for a while, apparently). The entire block was parked up by residents, and all of us had multiple tickets.

Anyone know who I can contact to complain about this? Surely we should have been given some notice of the parking changes, and surely the signs could limit parking within school hours, while allowing residents to park over the weekend or in the evenings.”
