PODCAST: Prof. Donald Shoup on the High Cost of Free Parking

Few things shape the look and economics of our communities more than parking requirements. Unfortunately, most villages, towns and cities write their requirements to produce the exact opposite of the communities they want to encourage. Myles Dannhausen Jr. talks to UCLA professor and author Donald Shoup about why parking minimums hurt communities and how thinking differently about parking can help businesses, ease congestion and help pay for other services. Shoup is the author of The High Cost of Free Parking, a book that has spurred a movement to rethink parking requirements across the globe.
