Parking is no More of a problem in steel port than it is in any other City or Vil Lage in the this citizen continues and i forts of the Borough anti crities to find a remedy by ordinance will probably result in conditions being made instead of better. At least such Lias proven to be the Case in other communities. The average Motorist possesses or at least is supposed to possess sufficient Intelli gence to work out own salvation within reasonable defined lines so far As automobile Park ing is concerned. Besides it is a sign of Decad ence when a Community can find nothing else o occupy its time1, pottering with on Inanc to regulate automobile Ira tic. The solution of this parking problem it appears to . Can be provided by this town who own a a i fact saturday night i a boil the Only Lime of the week when parking be comes a problem i so Ethson automobile who Are familiar with parking places on Side streets adjacent to main Street would use Handy parking space on those streets As much As possible leaving main Street parking space free for visiting cars there would be no congestion of parked vehicles in the business Section. Thoughtful Tiess of this kind on the part of local car owners would not inconvenience them in the least would be an act of Courtesy to out of town motorists whose visits we should encourage and would free main Street of parking congestion. If there is any one thing Smethport does possess it is room and there should be no. Park ing problem if the available space is used Intelli the Democrat in presenting the above Intel View does so with the belief that it offers a Solu Tion of the parking problem which really is not a problem. Park on the Side streets Clear main Street for visiting cars should be the slogan adopted and adhered to by Smethport motorists who have a regard for the welfare of their town. Then there will be no parking problem. Of. Dio chilling blasts i Evi Ninffa furnish i in Sinet Pori. Ami Vicinity with real Lilu Sli to with blur Rit s of of with a a a Wentt a .
