Opinion: Middlebury parade marred by motorist’s selfishness

The Memorial Day parade in Middlebury was delightful, as always. However, it was slightly marred for those of us sitting in front of the library by the woman who parked a white van right where the parade route turns off the roundabout, which blocked our seeing the parade participants coming down the road and round the roundabout, and — it seemed — caused some of the entries to have to move further to the left to avoid the van. This was the only vehicle on Main Street (there were other parking places in front of the library but it would never have occurred to us to park on the route like that).
This doesn’t seem to be in keeping with the Middlebury spirit of neighborly cooperation and fair play and I would hope that next year it won’t be allowed.
