FREE PARKING IN DOWNTOWN SEATTLE. No such thing anymore anywhere in Seattle, with these new pay as you park solar powered money generating machines for the City of Seattle.
These new parking gadgets are a bit difficult to use, if your are not computer savvy, then forget about parking in the city. If you can't read english, throw that out entirely and take the bus.
You need to either pay with a credit card or shove dimes, nickles and quarters into a slot that barely wants to accept them, then push a green button and it prints out a ticket you display on your windshield.(improper placement or placement on the wrong side of the window will get you a ticket)
No more parking at a space for 5 minutes to grab coffee and go, some of these machines require that you pay a minimum of one hour. What do you do with the rest of the time stamped on your ticket? You can always leave it on the machine and hope someone else can benefit by the time you didn't use.
Don't dare roll down your window while this sticker is displayed, otherwise it will end up forever lost in the panel between your doors!
What are your thoughts about these new automated parking enforcers? Do they work for you?
