The first commenter, "DC," on the City Paper's blurb about it pointed out that it's Imhoff, not any young residents, who seem to want a "one size fits all solution."

Exactly,

Though I'll feed the conspiracy theorists fears. I want to see people driving less. The issue however is that its so hard to create meaningful pedestrian/cyclist infrastructure but much easier to come up with explicitly anti-car laws and regulations that also get people to stop driving so much.

And there is the resources issue. Cars take up a lot of space and DC has a finite amount of space they can dedicate to transportation. It's apparently at or near the breaking point to fit cars in so the city has to appeal to something else in order to remain viable. Naturally that will be policies that relatively benefit non-motorists more than motorists. But motorists still have the momentum by far.
