    Because there’s already so much parking available, right?

    Yes, there literally is. Very often, parking minimums are set to accommodate peak parking demand and parking lots sit >50% empty 99% of the time.

      Very often parking minimums are set to accommodate 120% of peak demand - that is even on the peak demand days there are many empty parking places.

        It’s definitely true of the US and Canada, and very likely Australia and New Zealand too. Maybe it’s not so excessive in the UK or Ireland, but still, most of the English-speaking countries have been infected by 1950s USA’s misguided influence.
