The often frustrating task of finding a place to park may become a thing of the past.
Imagine being able to avoid a parking ticket by adding time from your cell phone, or knowing where parking is available before you arrive at your destination. These are some of the ideas being discussed at the parking symposium, hosted by the Committee for a Smart New Jersey and the Intelligent Transportation Society of America. The society’s CEO Scott Belcher, says utilizing these new technologies can have a more positive effect on the economy and the environment.
“If you can get people parked and get people out of their cars then they’re going to get to the stores they’re going to get to the schools, and they’re going get to the things that are important in life, and not wasting their time driving around looking for parking spaces.”
Belcher says some of these technologies are already being used and within the next two years they will be available in almost every major city.
