I’ve been mostly out of town for the last two months so when I pulled into my regular public parking spot to get a cold afternoon treat, I noticed the parking meters had all been beheaded and a new-fangled meter installed in one spot near the sidewalk.
Using it is very straighforward — note your spot number, punch it in, then deposit coins or credit card (woot!) to pay. My favorite part is you don’t have to then go back to your car and put a ticket in the window.
I’m sure there are all kinds of ways this new technology will get messed up, but for now, I’m liking it. Have you seen these all over town already and I’m just late? Anyone have any problems with them yet?
