Do any of the meters have the new Sunday meter laws/hours on them? Right now it is almost impossible for anyone to read the meter hours inside the scratched plexiglass covers of the meters. Maybe the meter makers intended it that way so that the city gets more revenue and they come back to the meter makers every seven years. One thing I am sure of, they make a lot of tourists fuming mad, perhaps never to return to SF>
Roflyn - Believe it or not, not everyone wants or needs a car, especially if they live near BART or other public transit. If we are to build housing that "working class" people can afford, building without a spot for each unit is reasonable in areas by mass transit. I'm older and don't ride a bike anymore, so I'm not talking from the perspective of a young, "cars are evil" perspective.
How about limiting residential parking stickers to one per household? I'd go for that.
@SF_citizen: "$74 per year for a residential parking permit" I guess you haven't applied for one recently. I believe it's $105 now. In 1998 it was $21. At this rate, all the people who can't afford homes with garages, will not be able to afford to live in San Francisco at all! And they tell us we have low inflation. Maybe for anything you don't need. But for everything you do need (food, gas, insurance, MUNI, parking) inflation is ridiculously high.
