Alternate side parking in NYC at least evens up the odds a little; unless it's suspended, car owners have to move their cars twice a week or get a ticket, each of which costs $65.  A fair number of owners have figured out how to work with the system by staying with their cars until the street sweeper comes by, getting out of its way and then returning to their original parking space as the sweeper passes by.  Since not every owner can do this, there are usually a number of open spaces for people coming in.  It doesn't make parking painless, but it's a bit more egalitarian than DC's system.
