Pedestrian Safety Concerns in 12800 Block of Meridian Ave. N.

These are photos taken of cars illegally parked on an asphalt sidewalk on the west side of Meridian Avenue North, just north of N. 128th Street. This forces pedestrians, parents pushing strollers, wheelchairs, etc. into the street to get around the parked cars. This is an ongoing and persistent problem.

Why There Is a Problem

Here, on the west side of the street, there is not enough space between the asphalt sidewalk and the roadway for a car to park without being at least partially on the sidewalk.

My Suggestion

I suggest that “No Parking” signs be posted in the area where there is not enough space for cars to park without obstructing the sidewalk.

Photos of Violators

The license numbers are blurred to protect the identity of the culprits.
