Sometimes I attend city meetings for new housing proposals, bike lanes, bus lanes, outdoor dining, etc. Quite literally 100% of the people speaking in opposition to these projects are Baby Boomers, who typically complain that they are going to lose their free parking spaces. Is there some particular reason this generation seems to be opposed to almost everything, and obsessed with parking?

Entitlement. Parking is also the real reason everyone was mad about outdoor dining

I’m fine with outdoor dining as long as it’s regulated, kept sanitary and restaurants pay rent for the use of public space instead of the free for all that it is now.
