Somerville/Medford News Weekly Speakup Line:Somerville Making Life Very Difficult For Seniors and Disabled

Dear Billy T and Somerville/Medford News Weekly Speakup Line,

They take away parking so people cant have cars. Then put in bike lanes that take away more parking. Then wonder what people are going to do. Food and package delivery instead of cars. Accomplished zero. And they are just starting to figure it out.

Food delivery drivers are clogging city streets. Can Boston fix the problem?
Delivery apps offered a lifeline to restaurants early in the pandemic, when indoor dining was banned and al fresco wasn’t yet a thing. But the streets were mostly empty then.

Today ― with traffic sometimes back to its before-times level ― parked delivery vehicles are further snarling already congested parts of Boston. That’s causing adjacent business to complain and forcing the city to take action in an effort to mitigate the problem.
