Abstract: Everyone has an opinion about parking. Usually that opinion is that there isn’t enough of it. Rarely do you hear a complaint that there are too many parking spaces. We want parking to be available where and when we want it. If the only spaces at Target are at the far end of the parking lot, most of us drive around a bit to find one closer to the door. We want the world to be set up like a suburban driveway: get out of car and walk in door.
