No more parking control officers to direct traffic off Market 

If portions of Market Street are going to remain car-free, it will now be up the discretion of individual motorists.

Since the end of September, a set of parking control officers have been on Market Street to direct motorists off the thoroughfare at two separate intersections as a part of a plan to speed up transit service and relieve congestion on the artery.  

However, after six months on the job, the parking control officers assigned to the intersections have been pulled, according to Kristen Holland, spokeswoman for the Municipal Transportation Agency. The new situation leaves motorists solely responsible for obeying the signage on Market Street, which directs eastbound automobiles to take right-hand turns on 10th and Sixth streets.

If motorists think the lack of parking control officers gives them carte blanche on Market Street, they may want to reconsider — getting nailed on the off-limits portion carries a $167 fine.
