Every Summer Morning

Car on sidewalk

If you get up early in the morning you will see this everyday during the summer season.  I could post 15 other photos just like the one above.  Always on Ocean or Palm Blvd and invariably at a house that is being rented.

Who doesn’t know that you don’t park your car on the sidewalk?  Yeah, no one.  But the visitors go and do it anyway.

Here is the best part.  Many times I have seen a police car drive right by.  Now I am not saying the owner should be hauled off to the Charleston County Detention Center on Leeds Ave, or even given a ticket.  But couldn’t the officer at least stop, knock on the door, and tell the owner to get off the sidewalk?  And if he has to do this again there is gonna be a ticket.

I could be wrong, but I don’t think the police are that busy at 5 or 6 am.

By doing nothing, it appears the city does not care.  If it doesn’t care about this relatively minor law, at what level do they draw the line and start caring?  Seems like a good question for our city council.
