Original How's this for an idea? Mandatory, universal $10.00 parking fee
It's a pretty stupid idea jackass.
Here's one thing I've noticed: The areas where walking and biking are popular are areas where parking is a pain in the ass.
It's not about the relative decency of the population.
It's about how much of hassle it is to drive.
Why not just make that universal?
Every time you park a car: pay $10.00.
People would think long and hard about whether or not a car is the best mode of transportation.
And they'd sure as hell make more of an effort to combine errands. No more moving from one end of the parking lot to the other just for convenience. (Which I've actually done as much as I hate to admit it)
Naturally people with disabilities would be exempt so spare me those whines.
Guess we'll only be hearing from people where it's either over 100 degrees or below freezing every day.
Not sure what to about Drive-Thrus though.
That will require further study.
And what pray tell would your "Fee" get used for???
