"After 36 years, Shoup's writings-usually found in obscure journals-can be reduced to a single question: What if the free and abundant parking drivers crave is about the worst thing for the life of cities? That sounds like a prescription for having the door slammed in your face; Shoup knows this too well. Parking makes people nuts. 'I truly believe that when men and women think about parking, their mental capacity reverts to the reptilian cortex of the brain,' he says."
