The city's robocall didn't go out until 7pm last night. Signs were barely posted and people were trying to move their cars around Edwards/Nicoll/Nash with no idea which side was the correct side to be on. Why is it never announced that the odd side will be first or vice versa?

This morning, new signs were posted where none had been before and people were getting towed and caught off guard as they left for work. Maybe worst of all, tow trucks were speeding down Nash Street THE WRONG WAY in an effort to tow everyone the fastest, nearly causing multiple accidents and jamming traffic.

I'm happy to comply with street sweeping but the city needs to make it easier for citizens to comply. Announce earlier, more clearly, and stop rigging the entire system for the benefit of the tow truck companies.
