San Francisco Parking Initiative: Aparkalypse Now?

A "graphic look" at the pro-parking referendum sponsored by Gap founder Don Fisher.

"The most deplorable ballot initiatives mislead the electorate about their true effects, couching their bogusness in language that's all but impossible for ordinary people to understand."

"Fisher's so-called 'Parking for Neighborhoods Initiative' wouldn't do very much to make it easier to park in the city. But if successful, it would go a long way toward making it harder to get around by car, bus, on foot, or by bike. It would eliminate new affordable housing all over the city. And it would contribute significantly to congestion, to urban ugliness, and to smog."
