Free Parking is in our Genes


Free Parking is in our Genes

In his excellent blog over at Parking World Blog, Pete quotes Ashok Datar who says building off street parking won’t work if people can park for free on street. He channels Don Shoup almost word for word.

In India, as in the US and Europe, that “birthright” of free parking is ever present. I always joked that it was in the governing documents of a country, whether a constitution. the Magna Carta, or the treaty of Lisbon. However Pete’s post has had me rethink that position. It must be in the Human Genome.
