Do you know who keyed these cars?

A bunch of cars were "keyed" last Sunday, parked on Pennoyer between the Meriwether West and the Atwater (near Rilassi). The cars were parked there temporarily, having been displaced for the day due to re-surfacing going on in the Meriwether parking garage.

This lane is notorious for attracting illegal parkers from time to time, as well as the hyper-vigilant community policing of a few local residents. Recently, a prominent "no parking here" sign was installed.

If you have any information related to this event, please let me know. You can send a message to: sowablog @
