Virtually Unlimited Free Car Storage, but No Place for Humans

Thursday, January 21st, 2016

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the fact in this City/Country we have virtually unlimited space dedicated to free storage of cars, but very limited space for the increasing number of humans who simply need a place to sleep in peace and access to a toilet.

What will it take to change this disconnect in values and priorities? What would it take to transfer the value of all the free space for inanimate objects into dedicated space for struggling human beings? Wouldn’t it make sense to eliminate revenue neutrality on parking to subsidize more important things like human health and living conditions?
