Description

When approaching Monroe on 8th, there is a sign that allows parking in the right lane of traffic very close to the intersection. As the other lane is a left turn only lane, cars parked in the right lane block the intersection. In addition, drivers are forced to break two traffic laws: crossing a solid white line to change lanes, and changing lanes within 50 feet of and intersection. There is plenty of parking behind the business that this parking serves, and it creates a hazardous situation. If it caused and accident, the city could be sued.
I have reported this to the city in the past but have never received a response.
