Fixing Grass Valley Parking Woes with GPS'd Bicycles

Technorati Profile

Grass valley contemplates $350,000 worth of parking meters.

If you are going to spend that kind of money, you could buy a fleet of bicycles, paint them distinctively, put in GPS units that would go off, much noise and a phone home with current location, should they be taken elsewhere. Turn most of the parking outside of Mill and Main Streets into loading areas and handicapped only, passenger cars OK for ten minutes, to pick up goods bought while roaming on bikes.

Hire high schoolers to bring bikes to businesses that seem shy of them, whole lot of them findable via their GPS's at any given time, to prevent buildups of bikes in a given area.
