Get ready for some curb rage.
The city is looking into a plan to raise the price of street parking to as high as $15 an hour in an effort to tame traffic, officials said yesterday.
$15 TO PARK AT METER
The Department of Transportation is considering so-called performance-based parking, in which curbside rates in busy neighborhoods are raised as high as the market will bear.
City officials, who have been holding community meetings across the city on proposals to ease traffic, will meet with a consultant tomorrow to discuss it further.
The DOT invited "parking guru" Donald Shoup, a professor of Urban Planning at UCLA and author of "The High Cost of Free Parking" who favors the city adopting the plan.
"Why not let the people who want to park pay the price?" he asked.
