07/02/2009: "Free Parking Costs You Plenty"
David Seymour, writing in the Montreal Gazette this week, outlines what we pay for providing motorists with free (or even cheap) parking everywhere...another example of cyclists, pedestrians, and transit users being forced to subsidize motorheads who really believe they "own the road." Among Seymour's points:The article is a short but valuable exposé of one of the consistent lies propagated by car-culture fanatics; read it in its entirety at There Is No Free Parking in the Business Section of the Montreal Gazette.

It's also a good companion piece to the Texas DOT's explanation of car subsidies in Do Roads Pay for Themselves? (quoted in CommuteOrlando).
