This is what I want:

I want every single parking sign in my neighborhood to have an RFID tag. I want them to ping my car during the hours there are parking restrictions. I want my car to ping me before the street sweepers arrive, so I can move my car and not give the City of Santa Monica my hard-earned money.

Keep your smartphone. I want smart parking.

  1. Not gonna happen, if only because Santa Monica doesn’t want you to move your car before they can ticket it. Going to the system you describe would be cutting off a revenue stream, and in these difficult time, a municipality needs every one of those it can muster.

  2. Who said anything about this being an officially sanctioned system (he said, winking)?
