Pictured here are the cars of people who were too lazy to park in the Park & Ride across the street and walk approximately 50 meters to the bus stop that takes them into downtown. Every day these layabouts jockey for spots on this block, and their cars stay there all workday. The block is one of the few remaining in the area with no zoning restrictions and no time limit. The drivers come from the suburbs or from up north (the block sits in Green Lake) and park here because they are too cheap to pay for parking downtown.
Now I don't own a car, but when I borrow one to move heavy items to or from my house, and am forced to park it where it is illegally blocking my own driveway (yes, you can receive a parking ticket for this in Seattle), I am driven to rant mode. If you're too cheap to pay for downtown parking or city living, and too lazy to use the Park & Ride that city residents helped pay for, just go ahead and take the bus the whole way from your crappy suburb. I bet these people all claim to be fiscal conservatives to their friends.
