A typical parking meter charges something like 25 cents for half an hour. Since one can fit 10 bicycles in the same space as one car, a bicycle parking meter could rightfully charge 2.5 cents for half an hour of parking. There are no such parking meters. And then, even if there were, they would need to install 10 of them. Isn’t going to happen.
I’m sure the Autodominionists will make some sort of stink that we cyclists aren’t paying our fair share for the road and are stealing parking from paying customers and getting free parking but, you know what? Too bad. Buy a bike and you could have free parking, too.
