Letter: Park and shop

Robert Soja, Naples

Park and shop

Citizens of Collier County, snowbirds and visitors:

For years I just assumed that it said "Valet" painted in the parking lot outside of Publix. Now I see it actually says "Fire Lane."

I don't understand why everyone stops there to drop off somebody. I understand elderly people, people with disabilities, or even in a summertime monsoon, but it's everyone, all of the time.

We are all busy these days, and I am going somewhere too.

Can't you just park your car and walk?

I think it's funny that firemen park at the back of the parking lot while shopping — everyone else is in the fire lane!
