My problems with parking downtown aren't the all-day parking situations. Those are great. I would love to work downtown and pay that.

The problem is "I want to go out for dinner, let's go to Slainte". Most lots will have an inscrutable system where "oops, you crossed the magical 6pm threshold that means we get to charge you for both the daytime and evening price, cough up $8 for a 2-hour outing!"

Downtown parking is geared for people who work there. People who want to go and shop there or eat there get a minefield of tricks that will end up costing more than your appetizer. For those things, the meter parking is great... but meters are usually taken (and often intimidating to suburbanites).
