This is the prefect double-take door. Something is so very wrong.

What I like most is that even though the steps have been removed, the decorations hanging from the doorknob are still there.

I guess this has happened to make space for a car. This space was probably needed because street parking in the road is particularly conjested. Parking is bad here because it is one road away from the controlled parking zone (where I live). What this means is that commuters into Bristol park in this road and leave their cars here all day. This is an unintended consequence for those residents who voted against residents parking (for which you have to pay to park outside your own home). I think the residents would give anything now to have a controlled parking zone. They might not have to convert their front gardens and remove steps to their front doors if there were one.

The domino effect.

  1. Great find, so funny that the decorations are still on that door. We have to park our car on the street outside our house but we can drive around the back to a cul de sac when someone takes our space, so it’s not too bad. We live in a small town, so there’s not too many cars parking in our street, luckily.

  2. Three nice looking doors in one shot – cool!
    Parking will always be an issue in major urban centres. In Montreal there’s a lot of “local’s only” parking zones in residential areas. I don’t know how much each resident pays for annual pass but I hear it’s quite reasonable.
    It’s a major pain for visitors and non-residents though. There have been times while visiting friends or family in town that I’ve driven around for 20-30 minutes trying to find a place to park, and of course in winter it’s much worse 😦
