Here’s a Parking Policy That Works for the People – Goldilocks

Charging the right prices for curb parking can remove the incentive to cruise for it.

A six-month study of a 15-block area in the Upper West Side found that searching for free parking created 366,000 excess vehicle miles traveled annually. The cruising cars congested traffic, polluted the air, and emitted 22 tons of carbon dioxide per block per year.

Goldilocks parking prices (not too high, not too low) eliminate the need to cruise for curb parking.
