Dale Frasier and his Calgary Parking Authority have the right idea — Today they launched a new program titled "Size does matter." Unlike many other cities, Calgary is giving reduced rate parking to SMALL cars. Something your’s truly has been touting for years.
None of this "Support your local electric car" for the folks in Canada’s Oil City. These folks have the right idea. If your car is less than three meters and change, you can apply for a permit and get a 25 percent discount on your parking charges. Their new parking systems allows this.
Dale says that the slogan brought out the press and I’ll be getting details and a few pictures in a week or so.
This is going to apply to motorcycles, too.
It just makes sense. How your car is propelled should make no difference in your parking charges, however how much real estate your car takes up should. Minis, Smart Cars, and others easily fit the criteria.
Its just great to see a community that follows logic instead of PC nonsense when it comes to parking.
All the best Dale and Calgary, keep it up.
