Report illegal parking or request parking enforcement signs:  At Harmon and 49 1/2 St, residents were concerned with parking congestion, specifically cars parking on the corners and causing a lack of visibility.  This was reported via 311 app and within a few months an Austin Traffic Engineer agreed that parking restriction signs should be put in to increase visibility and reduce hazard.  Since the installation of two signs the illegal parking issues and congestion has stopped.
