Despite what you may have seen or heard, this much is certain: You are not allowed to park on sidewalks in Pittsburgh. Like, not at all. Never. But that hasn’t deterred many from doing so in places (ahem, Mount Washington) where narrow streets and the potential for sideswipes often leave car owners looking for elbow room where they can find it, and, in turn, pedestrians and cyclists looking for oncoming traffic as they’re squeezed into the street.

We came up with some ideas for what should replace the Log Jammer, from the sentimental to the nostalgic to the brand new (you're welcome, Kennywood).
