I'd love to hear a libertarian take on this issue through the filter of economists eyes. There is a group in New Hampshire recently in the news called Robin Hood. They have been paying parking meters before tickets could be issued and were sued by the city. Their idea of fixing the problem is to turn over ownership of metered parking to the businesses which they are in front of, allowing for open market forces and competition to dictate the pricing. Here are a couple of links:
