parking

NY Times op-ed: UCLA prof says curbside parking meters are priced too low.  The result: people unwilling to give up their juicy spots (like rent-controlled apartments); a significant amount of urban traffic of people just circling the block looking for a spot; unnecessary exhaust/pollution.  Seems like a no-brainer.  Raise the rate, decrease traffic and pollution, get the city some revenue.  If I were president, market inefficiencies would be a thought crime.
