There are several areas in Florence where parking tickets are being given every day. One such area is near the popular Taco Mama’s where a curb has lost almost all of its yellow “no parking paint”.

To complicate matters, this curb is under a tree such that the shaded light makes the faded yellow paint even more difficult to see. I suggest that the City Maintenance take some of the money from the parking fines, purchase new paint, and give those curbs a fresh new coat of paint.

Besides making the “no parking zones” more distinguishable, these updates will make the city streets look nicer for the many festivals and events in town and may lessen any feelings of animosity experienced by those who receive parking tickets in the future.
