Parking geeks everywhere
Which brings to mind a piece of economic research I remember:
Red Ink in the Rearview Mirror: Local Fiscal Conditions and the Issuance of Traffic Tickets
Sometimes research merely documents the obvious eh?
So I have to admit my biggest questions about how the leasing of parking meters would work is how ticketing will happen and be enforced. Just trying to figure that out I came across this. Chicago had a Parking Ticket Geek blogger who has a 7 part series on Chicago meter leasing deal. Here is part II: The Meter Lease Deal Part 2 - Morgan Stanley Smith Barney.
Mr. Parking Meter Geek has another post just on the visit of one of the Chicago Aldermen to Pittsburgh last week to discuss the pending parking asset monetization.
