Should Parking Cost More?

New, 1 comment

Old habits die hard, especially in car towns like Atlanta. But as the city gets used to paying for parking (thanks to those handy parking meters now covering seemingly every inch of curb in Atlanta) and looks at other measures to decrease car traffic, some transportation experts are pushing the idea of applying economic theories more directly to transportation policies. To wit: parking should cost more, especially since the advent of paying parking meters with a credit card has loosened people's wallets on the issue. [The Atlantic | Cities Blog]
