This parking space is mine. So why are you using it?

I have a parking space allocated to my flat in West London. Someone else keeps parking there, and ignoring all signs. How do I "persuade" that person to stop parking there?

Where can i park on the cheap in downtown Portland, Maine?

I will be staying in Portland, ME at a hotel near the intersection of Congress and Forest. Hotel parking is in a garage nearby and naturally it's an additional charge. Any suggestions for places I might park for less than 20 bucks? The free-er the better.

parking near Guildford station

I'm moving to Clapham Junction and reverse commuting to Guildford every day on the train - I'm going to be leaving my car overnight at Guildford as I need to have my car at work. Does anyone know the nearest place I can park my car on street near Guildford station? I'd be leaving it there after 7pm, and picking it up in the morning by 8am, so I wouldn't have to worry about the parking restrictions in place (residential parking permits etc.) Anyone else do this reverse commute? Any tips? Many thanks!

Is side parking with horizontal move is possible?

Do you know any car which has the capability of horizontal move to achieve side parking when both of car length and parking area length are almost equal (i mean there is no space to parking maneuver)? Do you believe a car with this skill can improve your parking opportunities? And most importantly, is such a car suitable for mass production and feasible?I will be glad if you can share your detailed ideas with some source -if possible- for my mini research project. I am actually interested in the technical aspect of the matter.

Parking Ticket from a city I've never been to

Frustration filter.... I got a parking ticket from a city I've never been to... I got a notice from a collection agency for a parking ticket issued by Lynwood California. Lynwood California is at least 500 miles from my home and I've never been anywhere near there. I'm sending in my objection to the ticket, obviously, but I've got a few questions: 1. Could it be a simple problem of the cop writing the license plate number down wrong? 2. If not, how can I find out if this is some kind of fraudulent scheme? 3. Any suggestions for fighting the ticket? Thanks....

Safe, Cheap Parking on the Southside of Chicago

I've got friends from Bloomington, Indiana driving up to Chicago to visit for a few days. They were going to take the Amtrak out of Indianapolis, but the schedule is extremely inconvenient.

Any suggestions on what would be the best station to pick? [more inside]

Where does a visitor park at Brown at night?

So I'm going to the Death Cab for Cutie concert in Providence tonight, coming from Boston. It turns out that renting a car and driving is cheaper than seeing the act in Boston due to ridiculous fees. However, the concert's been moved to the Brown University campus. For those who know the campus well--how easy is it to find parking after 5 near Meeham Auditorium? Will it be cheaper/easier to get street parking? Any secretly perfect parking spots? (and so on!) Google Satellite view shows a parking lot right in front of the place, but if it's not public I'd like to avoid circling for parking in a relatively unfamiliar place. Thanks!

Parking a PODS/you-pack moving container in Brooklyn?

How do I get space to park a you-pack moving container (think PODS) in Brooklyn? I'm moving to New York from DC for a new job in a few weeks. I'm moving the bulk of my stuff using ABF U-Pack - I'm subletting for two months and need my stuff stored until I find more permanent digs. In DC, I know I need to get a permit for the moving container for space in front of my place, but how do I do this in New York? Digging around on hasn't given me any leads.
