Free the Cars! Ban the Meters Downtown!

The Tulsa Parking Authority is considering free parking in downtown Tulsa, an idea we heartily endorse.

The Tulsa World reported in December that the authority will study the idea of making its parking garages free after 5 p.m., with the eventual aim of totally free parking downtown. (Street parking is already free after 5.)

It's a good idea. We hate to pay for parking, and hate it even more when we get parking tickets.

Add us to the list in favor of free parking. If we're lucky, free parking might even promote growth and development downtown, which needs all the help it can get.
