Citing a new report in the Journal of the American Planning Association, Curbed LA points out that "parking infrastructure takes up about 200 square miles of land in LA county."

That's more than four San Franciscos' worth of space (46.87 square miles) and nearly five times the size of Paris (40.7 square miles). Or, as Janette Sadik-Khan wrote on Twitter, "LA County has 85% more parking spots than people, occupying more space than the entire city of Philly."

Los Angeles, where it's you and a bunch of parking lots.
