To Park or Not to Park? is a guerrilla parking sign redesign project run by interaction designer and concerned citizen Nikki Sylianteng. After getting ticketed one-too-many times, she wondered why parking signs had to be so complicated and thought there must be a better way. Curious if it would be helpful to other drivers, she started posting the new signs under existing ones starting with the one outside her apartment window. Each had a comment box and a marker so drivers could leave their thoughts. Since then, the signs have gone (and are still going) through multiple iterations thanks to people's participation. It has also caught the interest of several cities and have even become municipal matters at council hearings.
