The Best of All Possible Scooter Worlds

From the Pulse-Downtowner:

A pilot program to be set in motion before fall ends will create five sets of 10-hour, reduced-rate parking meters Downtown for those who two-wheel with motorcycles, motor scooters and mopeds. And the city wants to know the best spots for parking these vehicles.

The deadline to do so is Sunday, Oct. 12, at www.cincinnati-oh.gov/twowheeler.

"We'll install new spots at the top five vote-getters this fall!"

"The City is responding to our customers living and working Downtown who have asked for more parking for two-wheeled vehicles," said Eileen Enabnit, director of Transportation and Engineering, in a statement about the program. "Additionally, accommodating scooters and motorcycles helps the city become greener."


Little known fact: motorcycles emit 80 times the pollutants that cars do. So no, they're not greener. But scooters are, which is a big reason why me and several people I know are considering buying one. And greater availability of parking makes it an even better option.

Radarman has been scooting for years. What he finds every bit as enjoyable as he finds talking about himself in the third person is finding unofficial and unregulated spots to park in. Fellow two wheelers have claimed end zones in the blocks between Vine and Main on Court Street where they park all day gratis. There are other spots Radarman prefers not to reveal lest the City stomp on them.

Now that Radarman mentions it, I think I've seen scooters and/or motorcycles parked in that area.

this whole radarman thing confuses me.

i saw in your profile that you like citizen kane. i have never seen it but have been obsessed w/ wanting to see it recently. but i can never remember what it is called when i go to blockbuster and i feel dumb trying to explain to the dudes there that i want to see "that movie about the newspaper dude with the sled named rosebud."

CITIZEN KANE is the name of the movie. See it. And if they have a 1932 movie called Freaks, get that one, too.
