You realize this is 3/5 of the price of the fine you get for leaving your car there are all day? (Assuming you get only one ticket, to be fair I've gotten multiple twice).

Sounds like they should lower the price or raise the fine.

Agreed. $10 seems like a much more reasonable price. This isn't San Francisco...

Another reason to do my shopping in Mountain View - free parking. As for restaurants, I'll go to California Avenue.

I'm sorry, but $15 is outrageous.

They actually raised this to $25 a day now which is crazy high! It certainly hurts downtown businesses to have a 2 hour limit, especially places like HannaHaus that have longer term workers. A more reasonable parking price and more metered spots would be better for downtown.

It takes me about 2 hours to get my hair done.

I can't say that I will be going to get my hair done in Palo Alto if $25 is the cost of 3 or 4 hours parking.

Why can't we pay per hour rather than all day?
