Hermiston Addresses ‘Parallel Parking Phobia’
Do Hermiston drivers have a phobia when it comes to parallel parking? If they do, the Hermiston City Council stepped in Monday night to alleviate those fears.
The council voted to convert parallel parking along a portion of Second Street between Main Street and Hurlburt Avenue to diagonal parking. The change will add two additional parking spots as well as a handicapped-accessible parking spot nearest to Main Street. It will also ease the “phobia” of parallel parking. The change will only affect the east side of Second Street. The west side will remain parallel parking.
