March Meter Madness

March 11th, 2009

I bet most of you haven’t even noticed that some downtown parking went from $1 an hour to $1 & 50 cents. (That’s a 50% increase for those of you who don’t want to do the math.)

That’s because the fairly new electronic meters make it easy to hike the parking fee incrementally and invisibly.

On a related note, viagra clinic a friend of mine parked down the street from one of these monstrosities the other day and by the time she walked to the machine where she could pay, diagnosis a cop was back at her car writing her a ticket.

I am really beginning to hate those meters with an unmeasurable passion.

    They’re also slow as sin. Bad idea, bad design. Expect prices to quadruple in order to pay for the defects.

    See my post, F*ck you, pay me? These contraptions were the straw that broke the camel’s back.
