    Regarding the parking fiasco in Oakland, an important detail has been omitted. In the unenforced areas in question, there are in general no sidewalks. There’s no sidewalks on Broadway Terrace above CA-13, and in Montclair there are two sidewalks, one on Thornhill and one on La Salle, that consist of a line painted on the street. How anybody could “park on the sidewalk” in either of these neighborhoods is beyond me.
