There’s No Such Thing as Free Parking [Slate]

Donald Shoup, a professor of planning and author of The High Cost of Free Parking, is withering in his critique of parking minimums: “They distort transportation choices toward cars, and thus increase traffic congestion, air pollution, and energy consumption.
