Coin & Card Parking Meters
I think this is a great example of how the city can use technology to be more effective and more efficient. I really hope to see these throughout the city soon.
Opponents to the new parking meters might claim that it will encourage more people to drive, when they really should be utilizing public transportation. Not true. The folks who already take public transit will continue to do so, and yet the meters will make life a bit more convenient for those who need to drive.
San Franciscans need to stop criticizing little things, and praise the city for using technology to make our lives a little bit easier - for us AND for them!
