    Aaron, you missed an actual “humdinger” of a story.

    http://www.sfexaminer.com/local/transportation/2012/09/parking-plan-may-help-residents-left-circling-out-town-vehicles 

    Elderly couple doesn’t drive anywhere because they live too close to BART and don’t want to lose their parking, so they just don’t go anywhere.

    Y U NO RIDE BART?!?!

  • Ay, thanks. Sometimes there’s a delay before stories show up in the RSS feed. I added the story at the top.

  • Anonymous

    Shouldn’t the people who park in Glen Park to use BART for a work commute all be gone by the time the couple returns home after dinner? Their story doesn’t add up.

  • mikesonn

    Exactly. Elderly couple complaining because someone will listen.

  • Guest/EL

    And if the Dubuque’s move their vehicle every 72 hours
    like they’re supposed to, couldn’t they go out at the same
    time time since they’ve already given up “their” parking space?
