Have you ever been to a densely populated, unfamiliar city and struggled to find a parking spot? It happened to me today when I visited a nearby college town for a “Mom’s weekend” when parents of all college students descended there. Parking was so hard to find!
If the World Economic Forum (“WEF”) gets its way, you will have trouble finding parking every day, everywhere!
It turns out that the WEF has found a new enemy: parking spaces. You see, parking spaces slow down climate progress and “hold back urban mobility.”
While it is hard for me to understand why convenient parking holds back urban mobility – defined as being able to move from place to place easily – the WEF thinks otherwise:
The challenge: In many cities, on-street parking is either underpriced, or there’s an over-abundance of off-street parking. On average, parking takes up around a third of city land mass and with around eight spots for every car. Spaces optimized for cars reduce the ability for cities to accommodate other types of transit, or solutions such as bike sharing or scooter sharing docking stations or vehicle charging stations, says Shin-pei Tsay, Global Head of Cities and Transportation Policy, Uber Technologies.

It will not be a ‘problem’ in the future.
World Enslavement Forum (“WEF”) , what is it with Germans and wanting to takeover the world
Shin-pei Tsay is probably the only person on earth within the last hundred years who believes that there are too many parking spaces in our cities.
This is the "freedom" Europe is fighting for.
Total lefty thinking.
For all the scoffing, the Left is moving right along with their plans, with little real oppostion.
I lived in a So. Cal. beach shack for years and an odd fluke was that it not only had a dirt parking space, it had space for two cars, it was a fight to keep people out of the unused one until I rented it to someone for a very high monthly rate.
People had to park many blocks away and during weekends and on events like the fireworks display, they may have to park a half mile away.
Having 2 parking spaces was great wealth on the beach.
Who voted for these tyrants?
The WEF and WHO have combined their acronym, it’s WTF.
No people, either.
It looks like the biggest problem the world has today is the WEF and other megalomaniacs. Get rid of them, get rid of a lot of the problem.
wait a minute
i thought we were just switching to evs
dont they need parking spaces?
something else is going on here
its like they want to get rid of personal transportation
elites are exempt
Store parking lots here in california are made too narrow on purpose. The unelected CARB members thinks you will buy a small car instead of a SUV that you need to transport your family around.
