LETTER: Parking bylaws are there for a reason

Re: The letter “The Right Not To Drive?” (The Leader, March 7.)

The letter writer

I doubt the majority of people buy vehicles, myself included,

Suggesting that the City of Surrey is being environmentally opposite when trying to get people out of their cars, like the provincial carbon tax,

It appears

Seventy-two hours is the maximum time you can park on the street in this city.

If there were no “restrictions” the streets would become a parkade.

Street parking has become a major problem in many areas of Surrey.

With the frequent construction of “monster” houses, more and more vehicles are being parked on the street, for days, sometimes weeks and months before being moved.

The occupants/tenants of these houses

Here’s a hint: If you want to be more environmentally friendly, don’t buy a car and don’t use the street as your permanent parking space.
