The War Against Curb Cuts

It comes to DC.

I think it's pretty hard to overstate just how much sticking front garages on street level row houses really destroys the desirable urban aspects of a block. Diminishes public on street parking, creates a safety hazard, garages are aesthetically not pleasing, and if there are too many on a block you end up creating a pedestrian dead zone which can lead to increases in crime.

All bad.
