Urban Cars

It is frustrating that small business owners (stores) in cities have a greatly inflated view of how many of their customers arrive by car. I also know restaurant owner who worried about parking to the point of lobbying the city to build a garage, then he surveyed his customers and changed his mind.

Especially when the fight is over on street parking, just do the math and count the spots. When 1-2 cars fit in front of every storefront in a commercial corridor, and the owners/managers of each store are taking up many of those spots, there is no way your business relies on those spots! Put a bike rack out.
