LouDC -- in a market economy, pricing is one of the best ways to signal the value of a product/commodity. When you have limited supply of a good, in this case parking, and you don't price it correctly, demand increases beyond the capability of the limited supply to meet the demand.

Almost everything about the RPP and "performance parking" "programs" and "policies" in residential neighborhoods is designed to throw everything but the kitchen sink at "the problem" without charging for the resource, and in that process privileging neighborhood resident car owner use above all other uses.

So of course it doesn't work.
