Bright Ideas in San Antonio #1
Rather than having a parking meter for every parking spot, San Antonio has these parking stations where you pay for your space. When you pay for your space, your receipt pops out which you then place on your dashboard to show you have paid. It leaves about 2% of the meters clogging the sidewalk, which also should mean a 98% reduction in meter maintenance and the cost of someone retrieving cash from the meters. Smart idea.
