THE PROBLEM -- A parking sign on a dead-end street in Bolton Hill is facing the wrong direction. THE BACKSTORY -- John Street, west of Lanvale Street, is a little stub of a lane that is confounding both motorists and city parking agents. Is the street one-way or two-way? And when you park, which way should your car face? Drivers complain that they get ticketed for parking against traffic no matter which way they aim their vehicles. It's confusing for a number of reasons. You come to John Street by driving up Lanvale from Mount Royal Avenue.
