A Case for Abolishing Parking Tickets

Ardeshiri is essentially proposing that you pay for your parking only after you know how much of it you need. Most current metered parking systems ask people to guess ahead of time, and then punish people who guess wrong (either via a parking ticket, or by pocketing the excess money of people over overestimate how much time they’ll need). As Ardeshiri puts it, his system also creates subsidy-free pricing,” in which the costly citations given to some drivers no longer subsidize parking for everyone else.
