    Thanks for sharing, I can’t wait to watch it! I live in los angeles and I’m always carrying on about the human invented problems we face everyday. It takes 45 minutes to go somewhere 3-4 miles away!

    I still have to watch it too, but I’ve always wondered how so often in parking garages, there’s a lot of space for cars to park, but not space for the people who drove them there to then move from there on to where they need to be without walking where others drive… I just never understood how this was ‘looked over’.
