Completely hypothetical situation, but I’d like to hear commentary from the readers.
In California, at many universities, there are parking spots for carpool parkers only. They are normally closer to the building as to encourage carpooling. Carpooler also get a $10 a month discount on parking compared to the regular permit parkers. This helps reduce the overcrowding (and overselling) of the parking lots and helps the already awful pollution problem. Suppose the university got many complaints from non-carpoolers that this was unfair and that they should be able to park in the carpool spots. Suppose the university took down the carpool signs and revoked the $10 discount to appease the non-carpoolers.
What would you say?
