Dr. Parking

An interesting interview with UCLA professor Donald Shoup - - known as the "Prophet of Parking" - - cities need money combined with enhanced GPS/phone apps = fluid parking rates.  Parking lots have huge externalises (increased stormwater runoff and pollution - - private investments have a funny way of turning into public liabilities that typical taxing mechanisms were never designed to cover) that end up as public responsibilities.  Look for cites to rethink the basic equation of parking.
