Beserk in Bezerkeley

Here we go again. The City of Berkeley, Ca has a problem. It has a lot of parking but folks are cruising around looking for available space. Their solution. Install signs to direct people to the parking lots in the area that have available space, but don’t install signs to space that is available after hours on the nearby university campus.

Hmmmm I don’t live in Berkeley so I don’t know all the issues but I would bet that I would find that the difference between the cost to park on street and to park off street was not great.  OK, maybe they charge a bit more for on street parking than off street, but if there is cruising going on, its not enough.

Raise on street pricing, lower off street pricing and fill the lots. All the signs on earth aren’t going to help if I now that by driving around for five minutes I can save five bucks on my parking charges.
