Letter: Support for permit parking

I support the permit parking on streets.  I live on Dundas Street East but am not able to park in front of my own home because of the 3-hour limit. Yet, many of my neighbours park for free on this stretch, taking the chance of the $30 ticket once every six months.

I pay for permit parking and park on the side street, but many times both streets near my home are full and I have to park two-and-a-half blocks away. This while a spot is available right near my home on Dundas Street. This is especially a hardship in the winter or when I have loads of groceries to bring in.

For people who do not pay for permit parking, take a look at the extra advantage:  in my area (south of Dundas, between Coxwell and Carlaw), you don’t have to pay for parking at any meter parking spots (assuming you support local businesses and need to park there).
