Two thumbs up for the village’s new incomprehensible parking signs. I consider them a critical component of the Oak Park’s integrated program to encourage walking and biking and discourage driving, which includes: traffic gridlock due to overdevelopment beyond street capacity; excessive signage of every description; a different set of parking restrictions on every block and on both sides of any given block; unpredictable patterns of intersection traffic controls making every corner an adventure in guessing whether the cross-traffic is paying attention; and so-called bike lanes that Rube Goldberg would be proud of.
