Saturday 1pm, and you've just picked up your mother and little bratty sister from the airport. In between happy hugs from your mom and major attitude from your little sister, the only thing that is constant is their want to go to lunch in the middle of downtown. After you roll your eyes and ask yourself why you invited them to visit, of course you turn the car onto the freeway and head into the city... THE CITY! Are they serious? The place that locals avoid on the weekends. The home of the millions of lost tourist. The place of no parking lots and high priced valets. The place that if not prepared, can eat you up and spit you out as opposed to you enjoying your nice afternoon lunch!
Alas, you make it to the city in one piece and start the dreaded hunt for a parking space and low and behold the parking gods have shined down on you! Right there in front of the restaurant is a parking spot. Not any old parking spot but one that appears to be exactly the right size! You park, hop out, go to the curb, approached the parking meter, reach into your pocket and..... NO CHANGE!!!
Sound familiar? So what do you do?
You pull out your smartphone and open the Parkmobile App!
