Two things to observe on your next walk:

1. On one way residential streets where parking is allowed on only one side, drivers will always drive closer to the curb than to the parked cars. This holds for parking on either side, even, astoundingly, if there are pedestrians on the opposite sidewalk or cyclists near that curb.

Why, not sure, but this is ubiquitous. Do the cars command more respect than the humans?

2. On the same streets on parking changeover day, 1st or 15th of the month, there will be some cars on both sides. Drivers will be WAY slower even though there is still lots of space available to drive as fast as they can.

So why in the summer they would not allow both side parking, at the very least, or more sensibly, two way conversion, is beyond sense.
