CAN PARKING TAXES HELP?

Parking taxes have been advocated by many as a way to reduce automobile use and some of the unwanted side effects that accompany it. This paper looks at the role of parking in trip making and at motorist responses to parking price changes. It concludes that parking taxes would have little impact on problems stemming from automobile use because paid parking is associated with a small minority of all automobile trips, and motorists using such parking are not highly sensitive to its price.
