Donald Shoup was quoted in an article in the New York Times commenting on the new parking meter system in Santa Monica. The system resets the time on each parking meter to zero the moment a car pulls out of a space. City officials say the changes are devised to make street parking more efficient by turning over spaces more quickly.
