- Lon Anderson of AAA and neighborhood activist Sue Hemberger argue against removing parking minimums. They blame bike facilities for making parking more difficult.
- "Curbside parking is already limited and, as the D.C. Department of Transportation acknowledges, will become scarcer as roads are reconfigured to accommodate streetcars and cyclists" Curbside parking is limited - as it is everywhere in the world because space is finite - but it might not be scarcer if other facilities are added. Even if there are fewer parking spaces if more people bike and take transit, then they'll be less competition too.
- "Residents frequently ride Metro, bike and walk, but many of us also own cars. And the less we drive, the more we park." No. If driving becomes infrequent enough, we can sell our cars and rely on walking, biking, transit and car sharing.
- "Why not simply avoid the problem by retaining the requirement that new buildings include some off-street parking spaces?" Because it forces non-car owners to subsidize car owners.
- "There’s a stark choice: Should we use zoning policy to make it difficult for people to drive into the city? Or should we use it to accommodate cars in ways that preserve a walkable urban fabric while minimizing the hassle, congestion and emissions associated with finding parking?" Stark or false?
- WABA will host a bike ride and party during the National Women's Biking Forum.
