Does this really work? Letting people park for longer amounts of time just reduces the number of people who can visit downtown.

This will only make it harder for anyone to get a parking space, since people who are already parked will stay in their parking spot far longer. There will be much less turnover. This is pointless.

I LOVE this! Now I can leave my car in a city garage for 4 hours instead of just 3. Thanks!!!

Yippee! I can park and shop all day, even eat lunch downtown. Then I can shop some more.
