The Chicago solution is the exact opposite.

  Specifically, Mayor Richard Daley had said earlier
  in the week, "That is their property," concerning
  the relationship between a junked-in space and the
  placer of the junk. "If someone spends all that
  time digging their car out, do not drive into that
  spot. This is Chicago. Fair warning."

The difference is that with DRM you can "park in
someone's space" without him or her finding out.
