Once again the City is looking at downtown parking. Should they bring back parking meters or step up enforcement of the current parking restrictions?
I have some other suggestions for keeping traffic moving downtown. Mike’s top five other ways to control downtown parking.
#5. Offer valet style parking. You pull up to a store – a city councilor comes out and drives your car to the Petro Can for a quick wash and vacuum – then they return your vehicle with a full tank of gas.
#4. Have bylaw police pretending to put tickets on cars.
#3. Park too long – someone steals your stereo (this parking control system is already in use in some neighborhoods).
#2. Mimes. Hire mimes to patrol the area – moving cars along with huge windstorms.
#1. Make gas really expensive so none of us can afford to drive anywhere.
