Megan McArdle writes in frustration about a change in DC parking policy:
For the first time since I started working at The Atlantic, when I drove to the office on Tuesday there were multiple available metered spots in front of the building. When I left, again for the first time since I’ve started working there, not a single car had gotten a ticket for letting the meter run over.
Isn’t that a good thing? Nobody breaking the law, and spots available for those enough in a hurry that they’re willing to pay? It seems to me that both parking and parking violations were simply underpriced before this change.
