LETTER: Carshare should look elsewhere for parking

Reader Bill Dear thinks the carshare coop is asking too much.

Re: “Carshare has the parking blues

I have just finished reading the letter — or is it an ad? — for the carshare co-op. I have trouble understanding how a venture in Nelson thinks it is their right to park in front of any residence in any residential neighbourhood 24 hours a day.

I am sure that if you have a home business there are limitations on how many vehicles you can park and interfere with your neighbours. For the carshare people to think they have priority over the people who are the taxpayers on that property is so high-handed I can’t believe it. Who do these people think they are?

I live within a block of one of these trucks. This vehicle is often parked too close to the corner, causing traffic congestion that creates problems for people turning the corner. If carshare doesn’t want to hear your complaints maybe the place to call is city hall — after all, they make the rules and get your taxes to look after our city so we don’t have to fight organizations that think they have the right to dictate to us.
