This is a double miracle. The first, that Paris is actually thinking about adding more parking space for motorcycles, and the second, that they plan to find the space in a crowded Paris!

The Mayor of Paris had promised during his election campaign that he would increase the number of parking spots for motorcycles, and we all know how well election campaign promises are kept, don't we? Well, according to the Mayor's office, they plan to create 18,000 parking spaces by the year 2014. 2014??? Would that be another election year? Yes indeed....hmmmmmmmm

To create the 18,000 spaces, cars will need to let go of 2,500 badly needed parking spots. Underground parking garages will have 2,600 parking spots for motorcycles, and 5,400 spots will be created on sidewalks. But that's 10,500 spots, still missing are 7,500.

The only thing they can do is eliminate more car parking spots, and if they do that, more people will switch to motorcycles, which results in more people needing space to park their motorcycle, which results in more car parking being cut, which results.... you get the picture!

The system used to work very well. We were allowed to park on the sidewalk as long as we didn't hinder pedestrians. The system worked. Now it doesn't. The solution is therefore quite simple... bring back the old system!

So no miracle at all ! Crying Smiley
