Your Eyes on Your Streets: Space Hogs

Our first user-generated slide show, on bike traffic, was a lot of fun. (See it here.)
This time out, we’re looking for pictures that show cars — the most
inefficient form of transportation — hogging public space.

Evan Goldin has already sent along a few, including the image at right,
which he snapped with his iPhone at the 22nd Street Caltrain Station in
San Francisco. He says it’s a common situation for the commuters
leaving the station to be forced into a tiny space by cars parked so
that they take up half the sidewalk.

You see this stuff
all the time, right? People and bikes being pushed aside by cars? Take
some pictures of it. Send them to sarah [at] streetsblog [dot] org. Or
tag them "streetsblog" and "spacehog" in Flickr. We’ll make another
cool slide show.

So far almost all our submissions are
from the coastal states. Let’s change that. We want to see what you’re
seeing in the South, the Midwest, the Southwest. Everywhere. Outside
the U.S. is good, too.

Get your entries in by the end of the day Friday, and we’ll get the results up next week. We can’t do it without you.

The shot below, showing the Santa Cruz candy man on his way to hawk his wares on the boardwalk, captures the spirit perfectly. It […]
