I don't think there was any sort of revolt at raising the meter rates to $2/hr. There was a warranted disgust at DC doing it BEFORE they got meters that took anything but coins. No one carries that many quarters. That was just stupid.

In my neighborhood the ERPP is providing a lot of revenue to DC. Off-street parking is $20 evenings, if you can get it. The ERPP ticket is just $30 and chances of getting a ticket are below 50%, so the ERPP ticket is below market parking. Even if DC were to charge evening parking here it would only be $2/hr, so DC is doing quiet well. Providing free on-street parking to visitors was dumb.
