Philadelphia-Motorcycle-Parking
On one side, the authorities of the city of Philadelphia Click for map are smart to recognize that motorcycles and scooters are there to stay.

To ensure that these commuter types park legally, and not as they do now on the sidewalks, the Philadelphia Parking Authority Open link in a new window have created 60 motorcycle parking spaces.

According to the Parking Authority, one car space can fit 4 motorcycles. Not a bad initiative I hear you say....

But... 1) 60 space is obviously not enough, it's a drop in the ocean. And 2), these parking spaces are not free. In fact, you pay half the price a car would pay.

Wait a minute! They acknowledge that one car space = 4 motorcycles. So in the same car space, they can make twice as much money as they could previously when they "rented" out the space to a car.

So this has got nothing to do with helping motorcycles... it's got to do with a better way of generating more income.
