Not really blocking traffic

Everything else is already blocking the "rush hour" traffic and ticketed. And being towed, so no harm, no foul just sitting in an unused spot. That teeny car wasn't really taking up that much space but it got towed anyway. Still had the deal plates on it.

The lane's clear for "rush hour"!!

Oh wait it's not. The parking checker is sitting there waiting for violators. Blocking the lane him/herself.

Blocking traffic.

Yup. In the city's drive to keep the streets clear for "rush hour" traffic, this tow truck took 5 minutes of blocking all 3 lanes to tow a car yesterday. The owner came running out as I buzzed by on my scooter. There's no stopping the tow truck though.

Just another busy day for towtrucks

Towed away 3 cars in the half hour I was watching. Generally speaking blocked at least 2 and often all 3 of the 3 lanes supposed to be left open for "rush hour" traffic for most of that time.

Blocking the second of 3 lanes

In the brilliance of the city's policy of keeping Water Street open for "rush hour" traffic (that is non existent) the meter readers like to slowly meander down the street, doling out tickets. This one took 20 minutes handing out tickets and blocking the 2nd of the 3 "rush hour" lanes.
