Durham charging for street parking

Durham charges for street parking until 7pm, but that's none of my business

It was less than a decade ago, Durham would have done anything to draw traffic to the areas they are now attempting to extort with this new parking initiative. These machines will likely generate much more revenue but will it create more turnover or just push people out and it won’t at all alleviate the lack of weekend night parking which will still be untenable until more parking structures are available but the increased parking enforcement is likely to be a windfall for the city, the inevitable late fees and court costs will also be YUUUGE. I just hope they don’t plan on seeing Durham’s overworked and under-appreciated police officers writing parking tickets as they’re already leaving the city at a blistering pace.
