It all started when I vented my frustration on Facebook:
Parking your political van and trailer plastered with your signs in the right hand lane on Oakland Mills Road with the flashers on is not only rude and illegal, it is also a serious hazard, Mr. Colavita...How many times do I need to report this to Tell HoCo?
And it went on from there:
It's even worse when he does it on 95 North, like he did yesterday at 6:45 am!
This has got to stop.
He was on Tamar the other day. I didn't realize he was doing it all over the place.
So far have seen this on 175, Thunder Hill Road, Ducketts Lane, and Oakland Mills Road. It is illegal.
I've seen it on Stevens Forest frequently and somewhere else off a main highway where I was surprised to see it.
Ugh ugh ugh
He visited me here in Elkridge driving a golf cart. I haven't seen his van/trailer combo.
Yup - I've seen it so many times in so many places now I'm ignoring it altogether. Perhaps that's the point? LOL
I called the cops on it last week.
He illegally placed signs in the yard of one of my family members... never asked.
He is a hard worker. You gotta give him that.
I am not going to say what I am thinking about that...
He did it on 175 West right at the entrance ramp to 29 North the other day. too! I also see it parked on our street - is he our neighbor?!
NO. I don't think so.
Right! he has been all over!
I think he needs a motorized scooter on the golf cart. Why stop there?
Caught in the act! Not one of the main lanes but still a travel/turn lane:
Yay! He just abandons it like this.
I took a picture too today if any one needs it.
I saw Mr. Colavita receive a ticket on Monday as well. This has been an expensive week for "campaign costs".
He parked in front of my house as well and I spoke to him. At first he said he would change the law when he was elected. I told him it was illegal and unethical now. He eventually moved his car.
It is just my opinion, but I don't think you want to have your name become synonymous with things like "breaks the law", and "traffic hazard". Name recognition is only going to work for you if people have something good to recognize.
Food for thought on this first day of early voting.
