In the United States we dedicate a lot of land to parking and it's worth thinking about what we could be doing with that land if it weren't going to cars. Maybe we could have more parks, more affordable housing, wider sidewalks, bike lanes or new land for jobs.
Using a technique called a figure ground map you can really get a feel for what's for people and what's for cars. I made a quick one for the area around the Pico Blue Line station in Los Angeles.
