I have to ask than, what's worse:
Allowing parking on 12th Av EB/WB
Allowing parking on Boundary SB between Kingway - 49th
Allowing parking on Venables EB/WB
All 3 are mind blowing to say the least.
I doubt there's any room to move the trees. They don't bug me so much though, the only thing I despise as much as the parking, is the right turn from EB 12th to SB Fraser.
That's right about 49th, that's what I meant to say, but the turn from 49th has no designated left turn lanes.
The thing about Vancouver that is really sad, is if they don't want any more lanes into the city, than start making the roads efficient to use. I know this would seriously affect business for merchants, but there really should be no parking period on the major roads during the day (6am-8pm). If anything there should be designated parking lanes (24/7), but I never see this changing. If I had my way,
DunbarArbutus/Granville/Oak/Cambie/Victoria/Commercial/Nanaimo/Renfrew/Rupert/Boundary and Marine/49th/41st/Kingsway/16th/12th/Broadway/1st/Venables/Hastings/Powell would have very restricted parking regulations. Just my personal opinion!
