Good Policy

As I've said many times, instead of worrying about how to accommodate cars, dense cities need to figure out how to reduce them. I get that there's a limit to the various "stick" approaches, and cars need to be accommodated to some degree, but if you aren't willing to do things like jack up the price of parking permits, then you should find ways to reward people who don't use them.

...and, adding, this isn't about me hating cars. Frankly none of this stuff impacts me directly. I don't sit in traffic jams. I don't ever need to find a parking spot.
