Yay, a fellow bent!!! :)

I used to commute from 135th & SE Stark, to about 11th and SW Morrison. While my route was often simply a straight-run down Burnside, when I had the time, the best route...

Thumbs down Illegaly parked vehicles

What does someone do about this? The blue car's location forced me right onto Sandy Blvd...at about NE 110th.
