Walking on South Street for lunch today and witnessed the biggest bonehead Violation of the Day. Cars were backed up for two blocks. Horns were honking. This truck was delivering to an eyeglass shop and decided to block South Street, which is also a bus lane, to make the delivery.
Delivering in center city and South Street is a nightmare. I empathize with delivery guys trying to find a space to park their vehicles while making their deliveries. But, not this guy.
A. He could’ve moved his truck about 3 feet to the left so cars could’ve gotten by.
B. He could’ve moved up 5 feet so the cars behind him could swing around.
C. There’s an entire half block out front of Jim’s Steaks where this guy could’ve pulled into and allowed traffic to get by.
This guy is the clear winner of Violation of the Day. Absolutely need to hold up a dozen or so vehicles to make his delivery.
