    No-no. Not the driveway. Curbside. Public property.

    Residential parking made possible by the residents themselves. That's not public space like a business, more like a club.

    Right. First come, first serve. Thus, if I have an app and get there before you even realize the spot is becoming available I'll bet you a box of Hershey's Tooth Glue that I'll be there before you are.

    Why? Are people in San Francisco pulling numbers or queuing up for parking spots on public streets before they know they're available? Because unless they're doing that I have just as much right to a public parking spot as anyone else. Like someone else said, first-come, first-served.

    Relax. I was kidding about punching the guy and the jail part.

    The other party should realize that someone else might show up. If he can't get the spot he doesn't have to pay.

    So I'll move, and if you happen to have guessed correctly that the guy sitting in a car was a Monkey Parking customer you win the prize. Congratulations.

    Knock yourself out. As long as the meter is paid I can park there. I've never seen a meter maid ticket someone for putting money in a meter.

    No, but then no one claims to have any right to park in her private drive without her permission. Unless it's a permitted spot, the city extends the right to park in a public parking space to any driver and vehicle legally authorized or licensed to operating in the state.

    I'm really amazed at how many people are arguing for an unethical scheme.

    This world is really going downhill.

    yep and if you are paying for that spot you are committing an illegal act.

    Please explain why you think this scheme is unethical. Why would it be more ethical for people to dawdle with no financial incentive to vacate a spot while other people run around in circles until they can find a spot on their own as opposed to a scheme in which people are informed about the availability of a space in exchange for a financial incentive?

    I'm sorry if your moral code doesn't allow you to see the unethical nature. I'm not going to write e lengthy paragraph about ethics.

    At least SF is coming down with it, has the city code to back it up.

    Have you ever tried to park in SF? Do you really think the people willing to be gouged an extra $20 to park should be favored over those who can't?
