This ease of finding street parking requires a much higher vacancy rate in the storefronts. Of course it's easier to find street parking when 50% of the stores are boarded up. Is this really "better"?

One-way die-hards scream about taxes and costs. But the only way to lower taxes is to have more businesses and more residents paying into the coffers.

More residents and more businesses by definition means we need to account for more modes of transport and we need to accept that more traffic - foot traffic, car traffic and bike traffic alike - is a consequence of a city's success.

Lower taxes AND fewer people is simply not possible. Ya can't have it both ways.
