You’re right, but keep in mind that parking meters have a function that goes way beyond just raising revenue with the meters. In a commercial district, the main purpose of a parking meter with a time limit is to ensure that the parking spaces are vacated frequently — thereby allowing customers to patronize local businesses without getting hindered by local residents (or employees of local businesses) parking in the same spaces for hours or days at a time.
