Economic View - Why Free Parking Comes at a Price -
Yet 99 percent of all automobile trips in the United States end in a free parking space, rather than a parking space with a market price. In his book, Professor Shoup estimated that the value of the free-parking subsidy to cars was at least $127 billion in 2002, and possibly much more.

Nimble Cities: Can eliminating parking spots make cities more efficient? - By Tom Vanderbilt - Slate Magazine
Unless you are involved in transportation, local government, or real estate, the words "minimum parking requirements" may be unfamiliar to you. And yet their influence is all around you. Parking minimums are municipal provisions that require developers building a new project—whether commercial or residential—to also construct a minimum number of new parking spaces, often without regard to the presence of nearby transit options or even actual need.

twin city sidewalks: Death by a Thousand Curb Cuts
They're so common, that you hardly notice them any more. But they're everywhere. Lurking on our sidewalks, between our buildings, and surrounding our fast food restaurants. They prey on our walkable spaces, clinging like barnacles to a rusty waterline. They are curb cuts, and they're all around you. Look out below!

Clogged Arteries - The Atlantic (March 2008)
The map above shows an estimate of road-traffic congestion in 2010. In most major metro areas, it is steadily worsening. The cost of congestion, including added freight cost and lost productivity for commuters, reached $78 billion in 2005. Half of that occurred in just 10 metro areas.

[0903.2717] Trafficlike collective movement of ants on trails: absence of jammed phase
paper reported on arxiv blog
We report experimental results on unidirectional traffic-like collective movement of ants on trails. Our work is primarily motivated by fundamental questions on the collective spatio-temporal organization in systems of interacting motile constituents driven far from equilibrium.

Technology Review: Blogs: arXiv blog: First rule of ant traffic: no overtaking
So what's the secret? John and his mates aren't entirely sure but they've found a pretty good clue: ants never overtake. Not ever. Instead they form into platoons in which all the ants move at the same speed. Increase the density of ant traffic and the platoons simply join together to form larger groups. This is how the velocity remains the same while the density increases. That makes ant traffic significantly different from other types of traffic in which congestion occurs, such as road traffic and internet packet traffic.
