Parking meters WILL kill the downtown after the city earns a few bucks with them, and then the meters will be mostly redundant and unemployed, just like a lot of us.
Problem is, the city doesn't want to look at the future, it just wants to earn money now, even when it cripples its own citizens and their businesses.
Short term strategies earn a few bucks now, but later they cost a lot more to put right than they earned. . . . . but that's the future and who cares about that, right?
