Editor:

Jim Gerstley’s letter (“Car culture lives on,” Letter to the Editor, March 18) about Santa Monica parking has his assumption about what he believes are the city’s assumptions about residents and workers and noted some examples, namely San Francisco, New York and Mackinac Island, Mich. He may have something here. Leaving aside New York and San Francisco, Mackinac Island may indeed be the model Santa Monica has in mind because there are no private cars on the island. Perhaps that’s the goal of the so-called traffic planners here in Santa Monica.
