The Question Is: What is the newest innovation in the City of Huntington Beach? Parking meters at Dog Beach that take credit cards! Remember when you were a little kid and your Mom or Dad let you put the coin in the parking meter? That was such a thrill. Well, that's inflation for you. What used to be paid in coins now can be paid using your credit card.
The City of Huntington Beach has just installed 15 meters at Dog Beach as part of a pilot program. Two other cities are sharing in this pilot program, West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. The new machines will still take coins just like the old ones, but they'll also take debit, Visa and MasterCard.
By the way, the rates are still the same, 25 cents for 10 minutes and you don't have to go to the drive thru just to get some change.
Here's a photo taken at Dog Beach on the First Friday of Summer. Ya' gotta love it!
