Car Sharing Service Offers Street Parking

This from metermadness: 

BMW’s DriveNow car-sharing service has expanded in San Francisco to allow for street parking, making it convenient for customers who don’t have time to return the car to a designated station.

While the street parking option will start just in select parts of the Mission District, the expanded service should come to Bernal Heights, Haight Ashbury, Noe Valley, North Panhandle (NOPA), Alamo Square and Potrero Hill by the end of this year.

Great, you can find street parking, but can you afford the car? Here is a copy and paste from DriveNow’s website:

Keep your BMW for as little or as long as you like. Just $12 for the first 30 minutes of driving, and 32 cents for each additional minute.

Or, you can take the flat rate of $60 for 24 hours. Rich and stupid?  Then this might be for you.

    Rich and stupid?

    Funny, because everyone I know who is not stupid, is fairly rich. And everyone I know who is rich is not stupid at all.

    Can you explain your point?

      John: I suppose I’m guilty of having an emotional reaction to a service I see as expensive, but then I’m not into cars. It would have been more accurate for me to say that I personally would have to be rich and stupid to use it. Others – into cars and in need of a parking space – will undoubtedly use the service and I have no idea whether they will be rich or smart or dumb.
