ROYAL OAK (WWJ) – Last fall one of Metro Detroit’s most popular downtown areas saw some major changes to its parking system – a move that’s created relative chaos over the last six months or so.

Royal Oak introduced two big changes back in November that have caused quite the stir – back-in parking on Washington, and two-hour parking limits on what many call a complicated app.

Residents and business owners are speaking out about the system, and there’s even a petition calling for change. In a new edition of The Daily J podcast, WWJ’s Zach Clark took a road trip to Royal Oak to figure out why it’s so hard to park in downtown Royal Oak.
