WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- You may notice some specially marked parking spaces downtown.

The city has painted spaces in the 100 block of North Front Street to say "Taxi Only After Midnight."

It's part of a pilot project to increase compliance of the taxi stand restrictions downtown.

So What . . .

The cab parking places were already designated and marked as a tow away zone. WPD / NHSO have NOT enforced this. So the parking places are marked, so what? Just a waste of paint. Wonder what it would be like if law enforcement actually did their jobs? It seems they would rather talk about a lack of cabs. WWAY, follow this to see what if anything changes.

Native or Naïve?

Have you not noticed that the cops have A LOT MORE to do downtown than to police parking spots?? You are right that if people are too stupid to read the signs that are posted, they might be too stupid to read the big painted signs on the road. I'm sure those who decide to park there anyway are getting tickets.

CITY COUNCIL FORGETTING SOMETHING

CITY COUNCIL SHOULD PUT CIGARETTE ASHTRAYS UP AND DOWN THE CAB STAND. THIS WAY - YOU WILL OT HAVE CIGARETTE BUTTS LITTERED ALL OVER STREET AROUND CAB STAND. THOSE CAB DRIVERS CAN CHAIN-SMOKE CIGARETTES, LIKE BURNING TIRES, MAN !!

Ignorant remark

If you had even half a brain you'd know that most of those tossed butts are from drunks waiting for a cab, especially those a-holes who toss their butts on the ground just prior to entering the car.

Put the taxi stands on

Put the taxi stands on second street and block off front street completely on weekends and holidays. Pedestrians on Front Street only would be a lot safer for everyone.
