Also, if it's metered, and the price is sufficient to maintain a 15% vacancy rate, it allows people to stop and shop on impulse, usually on their way to or from work, which is why banning parking during rush hour is bad for businesses. I definitely sympathize with the IV merchants who don't want to lose the onstreet parking. And yes, as Sean states, it's a great buffer and traffic calmer. I believe it enhances the pedestrian friendliness of streets.
