Slog PM: Seattle’s 72-Hour Parking Rule Returns, Tiny Shelters Become a Sacrament, and a Weekend Full of Protests

: Today is the day! I would like to be a little dramatic and call this fascism, but the political right has a very difficult time interpreting tone, so I will not. Anyway, today the Seattle Department of Transportation will resume ticketing vehicles that stay still in one spot for longer than 72-hours. This returns the city to a pre-COVID-19 status quo that we all know will hurt people living in their cars. In any case, I’m surprised they didn’t go back to the 72-hour rule around the same time the City Council tried to tell grocery workers to stop being a bunch of babies about their low-wages and deadly working conditions.
