On Street Parking Technology
On-street parking technology has changed dramatically over the years. Evolving from the basics of a windup clock, todays' equipment can change rates and hours with the stroke of a key at your computer. You can know, in real time, what spaces are occupied and where violators might be. Meters can call you for repairs or call your customers to warn them that they're about to expire. Enforcement techniques have improved tremendously. Payment methods continue to multiply across various platforms.
