Parking Regulations

Some bogs (Yglesias, Klein, now Drum) are discussing  regulations requiring parking when a building is erected.  It's perceived as encouraging sprawl, locking society into dependence on the car, and adversely impacting the environment. 

It's not a topic I've thought much about, but in a way it could be seen as the feudalization of society.  In feudal society, each manor relied on its own forces for self-defense.  With parking requirements, community parking is de-emphasized, each building has its own.
