Al Jazeera America Talks Parking Craters With Streetsblog

The term “parking crater” made its cable news debut last week, when I was invited to appear on Al Jazeera America’s “Real Money with Ali Velshi.” Here’s the segment that aired on the show.

Velshi wanted to discuss recent research out of the University of Connecticut showing how too much parking harms a city’s tax base. If Al Jazeera, owned by the Qatari royal family, can get serious about parking policy, then maybe there’s hope for American news outlets funded by car company advertising. We’re waiting for the call from Anderson Cooper.
