Raleigh's Banksy Clone
Since I live in one of the few non-parking controlled streets in Cork city, which isn't half as wonderful as it seems as the Stolen-Traffic-cone brigade fence off more than half of available spaces, while rent allowance scum suck up most of the remaining parking with their bangers, I was most amused to discover this piece of art made up of ahem . . . acquired traffic cones in Raleigh NC.
I am half considering writing a letter to my newly elected local councillors to ask to see what can be done about people in parking zones physically blocking off what effectively are pieces of public roadway in order to prevent other people from legitimately parking on what they perceive to be their personal bits of road. (Interesting how the €10 p.a. permit charge doesn't get the message into their heads that this isn't actually their personal properly?)
