So, what you're saying is, there's no justifiable reason to have parking minimums in the first place.

No, that's what you're saying. What I'm saying is that you can't assume that parking minimums will create built environments hostile to other forms of transportation.

I think it depends on circumstances whether parking minimums are justifiable. I'd say generally they are not justified like they used to be.

But some people still need parking. DC has a pretty good transit network (very good by American standards), but transit does not go everywhere, and it cannot serve everyone. However, I think it can serve enough people such that the existing parking minimum ought to be lowered.
