In this video from Streetfilms, Donald Shoup discusses and shows how parking reform can work. Toy cars and stop-motion animation included.
"During his recent visit to New York, Donald Shoup, professor of Urban Planning at UCLA, sat down with Open Planning Project's Mark Gorton to discuss parking policy and play with Matchbox cars on a miniature New York City street grid."
"Shoup argues that charging higher fees for curbside parking would free up more parking space, reduce congestion-causing cruising and generate funds for local street improvement projects. And unlike congestion pricing, City Hall doesn't need permission from Albany to make it happen."
