Publisher's Comments
American drivers park free for 99 percent of their automobile trips. Cities require developers to provide ample off-street parking for every new building. The cost? Sprawl that makes cities more fit for cars than people, and a nationwide fleet of motor vehicles that consumes one-eighth of the world's total oil production. Cities would be in much better shape if planners regulated the quality, rather than the quantity, of parking spaces. Donald Shoup contends that parking is seriously misunderstood and mismanaged by planners, architects, and politicians alike. He takes an economist's approach to the problem and proposes reforms that--by making better use of markets--would greatly improve transportation, urban design, the economy, and the environment.
