  1. Why would they worry about those cars when they do mot do anything about the cars that are parked to close to.the coners and you can't see to pull out and you have to go out in the middle of the street to see very dangerous

    1. Because a lot of the parking is being taken up for non working or unused cars.

    2. I totally agree with vehicles parked at corners something needs done about that

    3. There is a lot of people with spare cars that don't move for days that otherwise take up parking in front of other people's houses. Also agree with you on tenants with more cars than the should have per apartment. A single building apartment with multiple units should have a parking lot and require tenants to use it. Not fair to home owners in area to not have parking when they are paying taxes and having to maintain sidewalks to not have a parking space.

    4. Police won't do anything to delivery trucks , a truck was over the crosswalk and out into the intersection , no fine just move the truck , it must be to much paper work , will the # 1 cop do anything, no he parks at a meter and don't put any money in it and the enforcement won't ticket it . DO AS I SAY NOT AS I DO , COLUMBIA PRIDE Starts here.

    5. Ticketing delivery trucks? You know those costs are just passed down to consumers, don't you? We need a little common sense here.

    6. No if they part with common sense it would be a problem , and any car or truck can make a delivery , whats the difference

  2. This is absolutely retarded. Didn't move my spare car because I was on vacation for a week only to come home to it being impounded? This is a hypothetical scenario that is likely to happen.

  3. I forgot to mention the real problem is the 4 families living in one appartment and owning 6 cars. This isn't an exaggeration this is reality in Columbia.

    1. good example of this is 4th street between poplar and chestnut. Two apartment rentals and 6-8 cars!!!

    2. yep. i agree. there should be a limit.
      i also believe that as a HOMEOWNER you are RESPONSIBLE FOR THE GUTTER AREA IN FRONT OF YOUR HOUSE....therefore, i truly think that each and every home occupied taxpayers house SHOULD HAVE 1 PARKING SPACE FOR THAT ADDRESS ONLY IN FRONT OF SAID HOUSE. it only makes sense. todays kids feel entitiled, are lazy and have NO respect for the elderly, the critically sick, anyone with disabilities. its a real sin.

    3. NO the borough is responcible for the gutters

      Delete
    4. WHO is resoncible for the gutter at 320 s 2nd street , the whole is 8 t0 10 inches deep , street sweeper go over every week , wait till someone breaks a leg and find out . STAND OFF IS IN 2ND YEAR with borough and homeowner. Codes or highway or mayor should DO SOMETHING!!!!

    1. No I pay taxes on these roads, why should I have to pay to park on them as well.

  5. Get yourself one of those handicap spaces they hand out like trick or treat candy, probably get a free pass then!

  6. rental properties that have more than 1 unit should have to put off street parking in.

  7. complaining about the lack of parking, then complaining about attempting to solve the parking problem is counter intuitive my dear Columbians.

    1. If they want to help the parking situation - stop running the stupid street sweeper every week. Then you wouldn't have the same amount of cars squeezing into fewer spaces.

      The 48 hour rule is not doing a single thing to solve parking problem. Moving a car every few days does not reduce the amount of vehicles nor increase the amount of space to park aforementioned vehicles.

    2. i agree. what;s next? requiring all licensed drivers to only own 1 vehicle? IF only people who are able to would put in off street parking, if only everyone who has MORE than 1 car find alternate parking, if only people weren't so ignorant and lazy these days, all it takes is common sense and respect. period. every property SHOULD have the 1 parking space in front of said property be part of the property!

  8. that makes perfect sense. each homeowner is responsible to repair and pay for his curbing area therefore, the parking space in front of each home should BELONG to that property. NO ONE except someone living in that home can park there. more people may want to add off street parking....
