But how will I travel to Downtown DC to do things if I can't drive and park there?

It's amazing that even in the city with the second highest transit ridership in the nation that people wonder why they can't park immediately in front of where they are trying to go. And will often walk farther than if they had just gotten off at the metro station.

And yes, plenty of situations demand sometimes you drive. No one has proposed banning parking just because but when you only have X amount of space between buildings to accomodate cars/pedestrians/bikes and whatever else then hard choices have to be made.

Meanwhile this morning we had a link that showed a strong correlation between strong downtowns and lack of space devoted to parking and instead devoted to other things. Downtown DC is as nice as it is because it has a bunch of stuff occupying what used to be parking lots.
