It does seem to me that I'd want to try better enforcement first. Obviously, even one person parking in the lane defeats the purpose of the restrictions. And that person is there all too often. But it's clear that the additional lane would be very useful to handle the extra volumes during those times of day.

I think it's unrealistic to think that traffic would flow better without the restrictions.

And I think the statements of benefits are also unnecessarily optimistic. 5 additional shopping hours? Even small town retailers on main street don't open before 9 or 10, cause no one is shopping that early. And most of the streets you are talking about here have substantial pedestrian traffic between 4 and 6:30. Would retail sales really increase that much if parking was allowed?
