Illegal parking

Dear Editor:Can Code Enforcement or the Downey Police Department please do something about the vehicles blocking traffic on Lakewood Boulevard every morning? Almost every morning vehicles illegally park along Lakewood Boulevard, just south of Imperial Highway, as they presumably buy coffee at the panaderia. The strip mall has no front parking lot so cars park on Lakewood, instead of parking behind the strip mall and walking around. This creates a dangerous road condition as cars have to manuever around the vehicles. And memo to the drivers: just because you turn on the emergency hazard lights, it doesn't make your illegal parking OK. -- Ricardo Munoz, Downey
