This sucks...

The Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival takes place this weekend in Golden Gate Park and since I live about 1 block away, my whole area will be screwed up with blocked off streets and people who think they can park any place they want. The festival gets about 65-70k of people per day and they all have to park someplace... my neighborhood. It's a bitch to park in my area anyway, let alone with thousands of extra cars. I have Parking Control on speed dial and every year I have to have people towed. Do I feel bad about having people towed? Hell NO!

This weekend was not as bad as in past years... I only had to have 5 cars towed over 3 days. By far, the worst was yesterday... 1 car about 1:30 and then another car before 3... right in front of my driveway so I couldn't get my truck out. The second car parked there even though I told him not to saying "I'll only be a few minutes, I'm just picking someone up" His car wasn't there when he got back... it got towed. Here, it costs about $300-$400 to get a car back from impound... Ticket+towing+storage. If you have other unpaid tickets, it can cost much more.

It's just a weekend?... You don't live here! This is just one of many times a year that my neighborhood is impacted by various events that either take place in the park or end at the beach end of the park and they do nothing to actually benefit the neighborhood. I have a business that is 24/7 and I have to be able to get in and out of my driveway when I need to and not be at the mercy of people that think they have a right to block your driveway just because they wanna have fun... that's arrogant.

roadkill,
Is it possible to designate that area as a "No Parking", "Tow Away Zone", red or yellow painted curb and/or etc. I realize that also limits you parking area. Jokingly, what about a fake fire hydrant.
Sorry for all the nuisance. Any recommendations from the city that might help?

Roadkill I do not mean this in a smarta** way but seriously , why live there then? If I had to put up with crap like that I wouldn't live there. But maybe that is why I live in the middle of nowhere with no neighbors.

The curb in front of my driveway IS already painted red... doesn't help... You'd think that people know what a red curb means!

I live here because this is where my alcohol and drug facility is... the place was here long before I took over running it... A 10 house facility is very hard to re-locate.... My rent rate is fixed (since 1989) and it would cost 4x as much in other areas. An alcohol and drug facility requires clients and therefore needs to be located close to those clients. Trust me, I'd love to live in the middle of nowhere again, but have to live where there are clients to support the facility.
