We're unveiling a new column called “Patch Chat” where we hope some local conversations around issues both large and small can grow. If you see something you’d like to discuss with your neighbors, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last week I was making a trip into the Stop & Shop on Leetes Island Road and noticed a car parked nearly sideways in a handicap spot. It got me thinking about troublesome parking lots around town.
Stop & Shop can be tough to navigate, but I think I’d have to say that Branhaven Plaza where Big Y is, might be the worst. Let us not forget the unlicensed driver who careened into Radio Shack and Justice for Girls in the plaza last December.
But Branhaven Plaza isn’t the only place where driving goes wrong. A woman decided to dine-in at Yooki Yama last January in the center of town.
