San Luis Obispo again charging for parking downtown

July 27, 2020


San Luis Obispo on Monday began charging for 30-minute and two-hour parking meter spaces. On March 16, because of the pandemic, the city stopped charging for parking.

Currently, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 1 p.m. through 6 p.m. on Sunday, city staff will ticket those who fail to fund their parking meter.

The city’s 10-hour meters remain free, along with parking during the daytime in city parking garages. The relaxed parking costs are expected to last through October.

If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street

If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat

If you get too cold, I’ll tax the heat

If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet

Gee, that’s going to help our struggling businesses. Not.

And yet, auto insurance gave no break to their customers? At least not to me and the people I’ve spoken with. Sure, now we’re mostly driving a bit, but back in March, April, even May? I’d like a credit for the next three months, at the very least (20% is a good start).

Actually, a few auto insurance companies are reducing rates, very slightly during this pandemic. I have USAA and I have received a 10-25 percent discount, just because I Covid.
