Superior Sunday Squeeze, When Are You Actually Supposed To Switch Sides?
Calendar parking definitely has its benefits, but there also seems to be some confusion in the City of Superior. The last few Sundays have made this particularly clear. Huge snow banks have narrowed the streets, and cars parking on both sides are causing blockages in neighborhoods.
It starts on Sunday, usually late morning. That's because Sundays are the day that calendar parking allows a window where you can park on both sides of the street for the "switchover." The problem is, most people don't know when that switchover is supposed to take place. Or, maybe they won't be able to move the car during that time window, so they move it early. (That actually happened to my brother and he got a ticket.)
The City Of Superior's website addresses this. It's a pdf from sometime in the late 20th century, but it does say that the period is from 4 pm-8 pm on Sundays. If you move your car outside of this window, you could be ticketed.
Complaints about ticketing in the past have been brought up. I'm not sure if they have relaxed on it a bit or not. It's really not a problem most of the year, but with these narrow streets, you might find yourself taking a detour.
So there you have it. If you want to be legal, the switchover in Superior is between 4-8 pm on Sundays. It doesn't seem like a big deal, but I know in the past I've had to ask a neighbor to move a car for us when we were out of town. I've done the same too to help out one another.
