The only reason this would be at all threatening to anyone else is because when there weren't so many people in DC, and when a lot of people didn't walk and bicycle from place to place, drivers could have lots of spaces to park and the roads to themselves to drive more quickly.

This is a great point that rarely gets made. As DC becomes a more desirable place to live, more people are going to live here. As more people live here, it's going to be harder and harder to drive around effortlessly.

I think that greatly contributes to the resistance to change. A lot of folks look back and think things were just fine in the late 80s and early 90s. After all, at least you could drive across town in 15 minutes.
