I noticed in town on Edward Street opposite the post office what appears to be public parking spaces that were blocked by orange cones. I counted four free spaces blocked off in this manner.

Just out of curiosity, don’t double yellow lines mean you can’t park there? Every time I cross Smith Cove, there is a line of cars parked along the double yellow lines and I have yet to see a police car attempting to move any of them or issue tickets for illegal parking. Maybe I’m mistaken […]
