From DNV website :
Road closures and on-street parking restrictions
Upcoming restrictions, effective Friday, April 10
We will be implementing no parking and/or temporary resident-only parking on these streets near popular parks and trails:
Mountain Highway/Coleman Street area
Anne MacDonald Way/Old Buck area
We will also be restricting these roads to local traffic only:
Deep Cove Road at Mt Seymour Parkway
Panorama Drive at Gallant Avenue
Indian River Road at Inlet Crescent
Not a well thought out plan, but it's no surprise.
Here one problem with the plan....it's not thorough enough. None of the adjacent streets are restricted. All that will happen, is those that still insist on riding as close to the trail head as possible, will park one block away....in neighbourhoods that don't typically have issues with parking. And there will be a slew of new complaints from new people. And if the same stuff keeps going on, it will just be easier to shut down the trails.
What kills me is the irony...those that are still insisting on riding tend to be pretty fit people. Why not get a bit extra and just ride a bit more? Or not ride for a while.
