Meter Maids Get New Tool
The City of Seattle has ordered two sedans tricked out with the special equipment, to the tune of $160,000.
"When Sacramento, Calif., started using the technology in 2004, the number of overtime-parking citations more than quadrupled in a single year."
"We're not out to get you," said William Edwards, director of the city's parking enforcement. "We'd rather people comply than write tickets."
