Santa Monica has new “smart” parking meters that will be widespread by next week. You can pay using coins, credit cards, and even your mobile phone but the big change is – it will have sensors so every time a car moves the meter will reset. That means no more using the extra time the driver before you had or feeding the meter over the time limit without moving your car. Sounds like Big Brother is getting bigger and smarter.
