Dunno; sounds like a winner to me!
I actually agree with the city on this one. Some schmuck drives into the city for the sole purpose of holding a public parking spot for “resale”!
That schmuck should have his car impounded with heavy towing fees and a month’s wait and a month’s parking charges to get his car back.
"But we will not abide businesses that hold hostage on-street public parking spots for their own private profit."
Hilarious that this is happening in San Francisco the gimme gimme gimme center of Leftist Hippiedom.
He’s enterprising and if his price is too high he’ll waste only his own time.
The only difference between one car following right after another leaves a space is it is; not happenstance.
Let me know when you're 5 minutes from pulling away and I'll give you a dollar, two dollar, whatever ... rebate.
If you’ve ever needed to park downtown or in a heavily congested area, that’s worth it. FReepers should love this market based response to government failure.
Libs are always playing up market “failures”. We need to recognize innovation in solving government failures. This is a good thing.
I'm beginning to feel some juices flow
The nature of Monkey is irrepressible!
