Fighting Against Cheap Parking

This post from GOOD looks at a bill from California state senator Alan Lowenthal that seeks to incentivize cities into reforming their parking rules.

Lowenthal's bill runs on a system of points, which are awarded to cities at different levels for different amounts of parking reform. GOOD's Andrew Price is impressed with the idea.

"This is a really sensible bill. It would free landlords, developers, and entire cities from the rules that force them to build for cars, structure incentives to encourage other modes of transportation, and raise public revenues in the meantime. And Lowenthal's mix-and-match system is flexible enough that each city can choose its own approach.

But the bill been getting a lot of criticism online. Most of the criticism is ridiculous."
