Re­spect des­ig­nated park­ing spots

Kingston Whig-Standard - - OPINION -

I re­cently was at a small lo­cal busi­ness where the build­ing owner had as­signed the busi­ness some des­ig­nated park­ing spa­ces for their clients. While I was at this busi­ness it was brought to the busi­ness own­ers at­ten­tion that some­one had parked in one of their des­ig­nated spa­ces but they did not en­ter the busi­ness. They went to a busi­ness that was very near, within 20 feet of where they had parked.

I am un­aware of the le­gal rights of th­ese park­ing spa­ces but I just want to vent as to why some­one would ig­nore the sign that was placed in front of this park­ing space and park there when they were not ac­tu­ally en­ti­tled to. The per­son in ques­tion was very ag­i­tated and rude when ap­proached as to why they were park­ing in that park­ing spot.

I sup­pose this per­son also prob­a­bly parks in other des­ig­nated park­ing spots, e.g. hand­i­capped spa­ces, preg­nant mom spa­ces, taxi spa­ces, etc. You know who you are! You might want to re­think the next time you park where you shouldn’t. It might make you sleep a lit­tle more sound at night know­ing you have been more con­sid­er­ate of oth­ers.
