I heard it was OK to do the same for cars that creep into the crosswalks too. :)
I did see a few weeks ago, a parking enforcement guy putting tickets on several cars and contractor trucks on 64th that were obstructing the sidewalk. One of the truck guys was none too happy about it. He kept following the PE guy screaming at him.
Parking over the last few years has become a real problem in Ballard especially in the evenings. Anyone wanting to head over to eat at any of the restaurants better be prepared to drive around a few times looking for a spot!
