British towns provide a new way to pay for parking

Some cities in Britain have made it easier to pay for parking. You just call a number displayed on the parking meter using your mobile phone, enter the unique number on the meter, and the toll is charged directly to your credit card.

The system recognizes your mobile number so that you don’t have to use a PIN number or enter credit card information each time you park. You must set up an account first in order to use the system. Once you have made the call, the meter is alerted and asks you how much time you want before printing out a ticket for your dash.

“This system is an advance that will provide customers with a convenient cashless option to pay for their parking,” said Keith Chopping, West Berkshire’s Councillor for Transportation.
