Taipei Haiku #67

Uncanny street marks –

What weird purpose could they serve?

Let’s park cars on them.

Call me crazy, but the purpose of a crosswalk seems generally consistent across the globe – namely, for people to cross the street via walking. Yet many drivers appear not to have received the memo. I am confused. Such knowledge is required in order to obtain a driver’s license, is it not?

Pay attention to your car and its surroundings, you unbelievable pricks.

  1. You know what my favourite is? It’s when I see cars parked inside the red lines in order to avoid getting a ticket. Recently a new pedestrian walkway/strip of green paint was added along a street near my apartment. Conveniently, the space between the wall and the red line marking the outer limits of the pavement was the perfect size for a car. Two weeks later, plastic bollards were installed to make the city planner’s intentions a little clearer.

    1. Sweet Jesus Murphy. Reminds me me of Korea, where it was the fashion to park halfway on the damned sidewalk. Or, ooh! Let’s park on either side of a narrow side street so it becomes one-lane!
