The Law of Unintended Consequences Strikes Again


The Law of Unintended Consequences Strikes Again

An "artist" in Denver has covered a group of parking meters with hoods that say "Ride a Bicycle." Thanks to the comment here, we learn that the intention did quite work out.

The local drivers eschewed their bikes and drove in masse to the area. Why? The covered meters indicated "free parking" to them.

Just think what might have happened had they put on at 10 dollar surcharge on each meter for the day. Bicycles would have been dusted off all over the mile high city.

Artist, stick to your brush…
