Parking is Free
Tags:
  • Parking requirements (1 spot per apartment etc) causes folks to construct ugly parking structures in cities.
  • Street parking is cheap. People in SF etc drive around a lot to find free street parking, increasing congestion and pollution.
  • Poor folks drive less than rich and hence the cheap parking is bigger advantage for the rich
