With Smart Parking Comes Smarter Transportation

In 2007, city drivers in a pint-sized 15-block district in Los Angeles drove more than 950,000 miles, emitted 730 metric tons of carbon dioxide, and burned 47,000 gallons of gas … searching for parking.
There’s a good bit of irony at work in those numbers, considering that there are an estimated 4.5 parking spaces per vehicle in the U.S., including 3 surface parking spaces per vehicle. Of course, don’t tell that to an urban driver searching for a parking spot in a busy city.
