My friend Damion just sent me a NY Times op-ed by Donald Shoup, the UCLA parking guru who is the face of the movement to raise parking meter prices. Raises meter prices makes a ton of sense. I wish policies like this could be implemented in droves. Very little downside for anyone (over the long term anyway, since the lucky few who find the cheap parking surely love it), lots of upside for everyone.

Also, I would like to see more experiments in road pricing, but that opens up a whole can of worms, so I'll settle for the small victories for now.
