I live on union place. The parking is a big issue, we need to have a permit to park from 8am to 5pm due to the city commute but it seems like anyone can park since they don't come to check only on street cleaning days and they only give tickets if you're parked on the cleaning side, since they don't check for permits it leave us residents of the street with no options (which by the way most of the houses don't have a driveway)
In less then a year I've spent more than $200 in tickets. Another issue with the permit is the bars on the Avenue. Everyone comes and park on our street while they are at the bars leaving their cars until late at night and again no parking for the residents especially during the weekends. The permit should be at night time also.
