Comment: Smart Card Meters? (Score 1) 863

In Des Moines, Iowa, the regular parking meters are being replaced with new ones that can accept parking cards that you load up with money. You place the card into the meter and wait until the preferred amount of time is paid for, then remove the card. Now, here's the cool part: when you come back to your car, you insert your card and it refunds the unused time back to the card! No more paying for extra parking time!
