Minneapolis limits street parking until April 1

From Strib: Minneapolis limits street parking until April 1

Minneapolis is banning parking on one side of most residential streets starting Thursday.

That day at 8 a.m., parking will be banned on the even-numbered side of non-snow emergency routes.

The ban will last until April 1, unless conditions allow it to be lifted earlier, the city said Tuesday.

This is an interesting experiment. (What data should be collected?) I think streets should be used for movement rather than storage of vehicles, though I recognize the traffic calming effects of parked cars.
