Study: Allowing delivery drivers to reserve curb space reduces double-parking

Allowing delivery drivers to reserve curb space significantly cuts the number who double-park or block bike lanes and crosswalks, according to a study of a three-month pilot program in the District.

In August, the city became the first test case for curbFlow, a San Francisco start-up whose app allows delivery drivers to reserve curb space. The test was conducted in nine zones in the city, including Georgetown, Capitol Hill and Southwest D.C.
