In response to the burgeoning popularity of SUVs, municipalities are now taking steps to widen parking spaces. Curiously, this article doesn't mention how such measures inevitably reduce the number of available parking spaces.

A nearby university straddles the town line between two upscale suburbs, each of which has different rules about how wide a parking space has to be. I never knew that towns had laws about the size of parking spaces. A couple of years back when the school built a new parking garage (that also straddled the townline) there were no parking space lines painted for well over a month after it opened. Word on the street was that the school administration was trying to get the garage officially zoned in the town that required smaller parking spaces - since doing so would allow them to significantly 'increase' the capacity of the garage.
