How to win friends and influence people

The other day I was walking past this apartment block near my home. Dublin City Council has a policy of limiting the number of parking spaces allowed in new developments to “encourage” residents to use public transport… and then… people ignore rules and park on the footpath. While I totally understand why people use cars (I have one myself), it does show a problem with using legislation and government policy to change people’s actions. Ideas on a solution?

    Having a safe place to leave your car during the day means that a person is more likely to be willing to leave it there.
    Putting residents in a situation where then need t move their cars means they are more likely to move them, and commute.

    Or am I picking the idea up wrong?
