How not to create traffic jams, pollution and urban sprawl
#1
An excellent article on parking in The Economist, highlighting the wasted space, the costs and the folly of parking minimums and free parking.

(Free to read, up to three articles per week.)

Is it too much to hope that some of our politicians might read this, too?

Good article.

In regards to urban sprawl, there's always the old saying: build up, not out.
