THE PROJO'S TAKE on this sign is slightly different than mine. They read it as a ridiculous commentary on the number of silly parking restrictions in Downcity. If you read this blog, you know a bit about what I think needs to be done with parking in Providence. I think it's a better commentary on how often Providence strategizes to change people's behavior with signs alone, when infrastructural change would be more effective. For more on that phenomenon as it affects bike policy, see my article Get Out the Traffic Cones Already!
UPI reports that the city intends to remove this sign by Tuesday.
