Little Known Fact

I'm trying to beat Barb Chamberlain to getting this item posted to her blog that we both just heard in our Board meeting: Karl Otterstrom of Spokane Transit says that statistics show that 1/3 of drivers on downtown Seattle streets in the evening are actually driving around looking for parking spots!

Did I win? I just realized she was probably tweeting it, not blogging it. Yep, I just checked Barb's Twitter page and she did indeed tweet it. Yet another reason I need to get in gear and get SRTC on Twitter.
