Also, people seem to park on both sides of the street facing both directions. We moved from Colorado, where it is customary to park facing one direction on one side of the street and facing the other direction on the other side of the street. Why is it not like that in North End Tacoma? — Karen Hultgren, Tacoma
As for parking, you can usually park on either side of the street, but you’re supposed to leave your car facing in the direction of travel — same as in Colorado.
That said, there are many smaller residential streets in Tacoma’s North End where people tend to park in whichever direction is more convenient, and nobody cares or makes an issue of it. If someone complains, chances are the cops will start writing tickets.
