Best Guilty Indulgence - 2000
Parking on the Sidewalk
Yes, it's illegal to park on the sidewalk. But there's something so bold, so daring, so straightforward about it: After all, if the essential parking requirement is open pavement, the city has plenty of that. Sure, some neighbors may yell at you, or leave notes on your car condemning it as a fire hazard (in the latter case, however, we suspect a fellow sidewalk-parker had become disgruntled when he found his spot occupied). But then, when you think about it, it's only a $25 ticket, handed out perhaps one out of every 10 times. Which reminds us: We'd better go move our car.
