Too much parking?

I found this Post letter to the editor the other day, it talks about the city's regulations for parking in new buildings - generally, there are too many spaces required. The writer uses DC USA and the Columbia Heights Giant as an example, with the project's garage frequently mostly empty. Kind of an interesting point, though maybe traffic will increase around Christmas and when Ellwood Thompson's comes in. The writer notes that some sports should be converted to bike parking, which is a good idea -- bike parking is often very full around DC USA.

Your thoughts?

spend some time over at greater greater washington, you'll see that the parking minimum issue has been discussed at length. lots of good info, there.
