    I totally agree with the author of the first story, “SFMTA Postpones Board Action on SFPark Expansions in Potrero Hill, Mission Areas”, in that the resistance against the expansion of SFPark into the eastern neighborhoods is primarily about people’s knee-jerk, emotional reaction against having to pay for something that was previously free. I think this needs to be pointed out again and again and explained why it makes no sense that parking should be free and they should count themselves lucky for having gotten it for free for so long. I’m always amazed at how supposedly “progressive” SF is, but then we have so many people entrenched in anachronistic (and unhealthy and dangerous) ways of thinking (i.e., that the true cost of cars should be externalized).

    They have been saying they’ll pay and that isn’t the issue. However, because they screamed and kicked so much now they don’t have to. Works out nicely.

  • mikesonn

    Because parking legally is too much effort.

    Really, PCO’s don’t make up citations. If you feed the meter, don’t park in front of a hydrant, etc, then you won’t get a ticket. Just makes me shake my head.

    Don’t let them see you feed the meter, though. It’s illegal — you might get a ticket!
