Guest: Donald Shoup
Are too many parking spaces poisoning our cities? According to our guest DONALD SHOUP, deemed a parking rockstar and the Yoda of urban planning by The Wall Street Journal, an overabundance of parking spaces can lead to increased traffic, harm to the economy, and can even exacerbate poverty. In this hour of Radio Times, guest host Mary Cummings-Jordan speaks with Shoup about his years studying the humble parking space. They’ll also discuss his efforts to persuade city planners to think differently about cars and urban design, and how this might impact city denizens across the globe. He is the author of The High Cost of Free Parking.
