Eugene Locals Celebrate 'PARK(ing) Day' & Call For Fewer Parking Spaces

Palace Coffee and Bakery owner Lisa Truelove participated in the local event by converting two parking spaces outside her business into outdoor seating with room for bicycles and an art installation.

I would like to know why. It has never done anything to anyone. The only thing might have been the decals it had on it. One was a U.S. Marines decal, an old NRA one, Save the Bees, USA on the back fenders and an Oregon state stamp on the tailgate.
