NYC Council Speaker Corey Johnson Promises Less Parking

Corey Johnson, City Council Speaker, proud Person of Politically Preferred Perverted Proclivities, and 2021 mayoral frontrunner, has figured out the main problem plaguing New York as it degenerates into a hellhole that even Snake Plissken would find hard to escape. It has too many parking places.

No worries; Johnson can fix it:

“I do think that there are too many parking spaces in New York City,” Johnson said bluntly. “We have over 3 million [on-street] parking spaces in New York City … and we should reclaim that space and use it for the public.”

For example, NYC could follow the example of Los Angeles and San Francisco by covering every spare inch with drug-addicted bums passed out in drifts of garbage.

“We need to break the car culture. It is choking our streets. It is literally killing people,” he said.

He may be referring not only to traffic accidents but to the bizarre liberal belief that automobiles make the weather too warm by emitting harmless carbon dioxide, and that people are actually dying from this.

Johnson earlier this year proposed a five-year plan aimed at getting people out of their cars, including legislation that would require the city to build 150 miles of dedicated bus lanes and 250 mile of protected bike lanes.

That is, a 5-year plan to deliberately make driving in New York even more hellish than it is already. If “5-year plan” sounds familiar, you may be thinking of the Soviet Union, which continues to serve as an inspiration for progressives even decades after its collapse.

When asked … if he planned to use his clout to allocate “a lot more money” in next year’s city budget toward building protected bike lanes, Johnson said he’s all in.

His campaign promise is to spend other people’s money on denying them a place to park. New Yorkers may elect him Mayor anyway. They elected Bill de Blasio, didn’t they?

In utopia, there won’t be any private automobiles, just those used to chauffeur government officials like Johnson. So we won’t need much parking anyway.
