    No parking? At a train station? I infer from that that the glorious mayor of Seattle wants everyone on foot while he rides in a limo. He must think he's the reincarnation of King George III.

    They SPECIFICALLY designed the system with very little available parking at any of the stations.

    They want people riding the bus to get to the train. In fact some areas are now getting brand new 2 hour parking restrictions where there didn't use to be such time limits so folks using LR don't use all the street parking.

    Oh, and they WILL be aggressively enforcing those new restrictions, probably with Seattle's new automated camera/computer parking enforcement vehicle.

    Just more retarded planning trying to coerce folks into their idea of how people should live...

    Removing the freedom to travel is one step in turning us into subjects instead of citizens. If they control where we go, when we go, and how we get there....it's easy for them to decide, we just don't need to go there today. I will never get rid of my car and rely on the government to get me where I need to go. Just like I will never get rid of my guns and rely on the government to protect me. Government has no obligation to do either, and when they do, they never do it well.
