If it is, a simple rule, "No vehicle shall be permitted to park in any spot for more than 48 hours".

This is problematic if you ever need to leave town without your car for more than 48 hours.

I know that "long term vehicle storage" is a euphemism for abandoned vehicles, but many of these 'solutions' seem to introduce more problems than they solve, or encourage the wrong behaviors.

Rules that require cars to constantly be moved encourage more driving, and discourage "car-lite" households. Those aren't good things.

When we're discussing parking reform, we need to be sure that our proposed solutions don't accidentally encourage more car commuting, or shaft neighborhoods with bad transit access. (Market-rate pricing is especially bad, because it would encourage more single-occupancy car commuters from the suburbs)
