Toll roads and parking meters

Toll roads and parking meters:

Toll roads and parking meters are a method for rationing very frequently used public space; they can also increase government revenues for other public purposes such as public infrastructure maintenance, repair or upgrading.

[On heavily used spaces we now have parking meters that charge increased rates for longer durations of use and have the ability to charge differing rate schedules for differing times of day or calendar days.
We have EZ-pass tags identifying individual vehicles that are related to accounts from which the EZ-pass issuing government bills those registered as financially responsible for the vehicle.]

State’s could issue annual or more temporary parking permits for posted public spaces within their jurisdictions. Such permits would not nullify or supersede any other existing or additional laws or regulations that are posted with no less prominence at the same parking sites.
In the cases of subordinate governments’ jurisdictions, the local government is entitled to request the state post specific spaces under their local jurisdictions and they’ll receive a portion of the revenues generated from sales of such parking permits within their jurisdictions. Even if this concept is applied to partially federally funded thoroughfares, I believe it would not be illegal exercise of state’s powers.

States could sell temporary parking permits through their lottery vendors who already have the necessary WIFI equipment. The temporary permits could be purchased to cover a limited number of days or weeks or a couple of months.
Upon providing a valid vehicle registration number issued by any state and receipts which include the transaction numbers of temporary permits’ for total durations excess of 25 days, the state could mail an annual parking pass applicable to the vehicle and the applicable additional fee. The annual permit is enacted 25 days after the state receives the proofs of purchases.
Proof of purchasing temporary permits could be directly submitted to the states by postal mail and/or state offices and/or submitted for further transmission by local government’s offices or possibly by any vendor of the temporary permits.

If you buy a parking pass and you don't get a parking spot, and you then have to go buy ADDITIONAL parking, you'll probably end up ramming your car into someone else's or whatever since you are an entitled asshole. not you, specifically, i mean, you, as in, a person who would get a parking pass

Instead I think it should bill you if you use the spot, but that could be handled in the same way the ez-pass system works as opposed to taking the time to put money in a machine. it could work by the minute

I get the answer, and it's not bad. But, I don't really know what the problem is?

Sure, but when was the last time that anyone saw a coin-only machine? Pretty much everywhere has a single card-reader machine where you print a receipt and put it on your windshield. Yeah, it takes 2-3 minutes and is a pain to walk back to your car. But, most people who use marking meters don't use them often. People who use parking meters often, usually get themselves a parking garage or parking pass.

Right?

I usually don't go anywhere that requires payment to park.

John Galt, parking permitted and parking meters are required to legally park a vehicle in posted areas and are subordinate to all other applicable laws and regulations. A permit does not guarantee you will me able to find available space where and when you want it.

I agree that the EZ-Pass concept is rather than TEMPORARY permits sold by state lottery venders is more efficient. (If vehicle operator purchases sufficient amounts of temporary permits, they have the option of purchasing additional annual permits of lesser prices per duration). But I don't see EZ-Pass eliminating the need for more temporary durstions of parking permits.

Federal and neighboring states’ government’s involvement would be required for monthly or annual parking permits to be billed to the EZ-pass accounts of interstate travelers. In the future when our population is more accustomed to using these state issued parking permits, the EZ-Pass concept may evolve to handle parking permits.
But I don't see EZ-Pass eliminating the need for more TEMPORARY durations of parking permits. Additionally many people believe we should (when it’s feasible) retain more local and less federal governing.

Parking meters ration spaces and increase government revenue that can be for, (but is not limited to) public infrastructure and services provided to vehicle operators.

Among the government expenditures due to parking meters are their purchase, erection, repair, maintenance, replacement, and coin collection, and/or Internet support for internet enabled meters. Due to the extent of these expenditures, parking meters are generally limited to busier posted areas where overhead costs constitute lesser portion of governments parking enforcement expenditures.

The purpose of annual or monthly or more temporary parking permits would be to provide more revenues for their states’ and local governments.
