That Can't Possibly Be Legal!

Or can it?? Observe:

This is the scene across the street. Look, I'm all for Smart Cars. They're like a tenth the size of my current battleship, but honestly, their innate cuteness can only go so far. I mean, even Turks don't park on the sidewalk. That's more of an Italian thing. But is this Italy? No, it is not. Oh, and Ukrainians do it, too. And this is also not Ukraine. And thank your lucky stars for that.

They're still cute, but that's hilarious! I think I see a 'ZEB' sighting as well, ugh.

I'm all for smart cars, but less than before. They're not particularly efficient or as green as advertised. Still, I'm sure that I'll be overjoyed when I get creamed by one when riding my bicycle - instead of by The King.

I saw this the other day as well when I was driving by on 1st Ave.

I'd have no problem with it if they weren't parked up on the sidewalk. If the car can pull up against the curb and not stick out further than the other cars parallel parked, go for it.
