Towed: Unhappy Ending To Fireworks

What a wonderful way to begin the holiday season. I went downtown with friends and family, watched the parade and enjoyed the fireworks. It was a great way to spend the evening and take part in a community tradition — until my car was towed! We parked in the lot across from Coeur d’Alene Athletic Club. It was full of cars and the gym was closed. We were parked for about an hour and when we came back the car was gone. There were several other families standing in the rain wondering where their car was. I wish I had snapped a picture of the people in pouring rain under the Coeur d’Alene Athletic Club sign — what great P.R. — what a wonderful way for a local business to participate in a community event. Did I mention the gym was CLOSED? I finally found the sign that said the lot was permit parking only as it was blocked by a huge Suburban/Jill Buckland, Coeur d'Alene, Coeur d'Alene Press letters to the editor. More here.

Question: Have you had a bad parking experience in downtown Coeur d'Alene?
