Free Parking in Atlanta, To Punish Privatized Meter Readers

The Atlanta City Council voted unanimously to approve a 30-day moratorium on enforcing the city's privately managed parking meters.

The moratorium is a response to local complaints over operation of the city's parking meters since their January takeover by a private company.

"Councilman Kwanza Hall pushed for a moratorium in response to widespread complaints about the program. In January, a private company began to manage the program and install new parking meters in various parts of the city.

Most of the meters and enforcement has taken place in downtown Atlanta, which is located in Hall's district. The complaints include confusing parking signs, meters that don't work properly and ticketing after parking guidelines have expired."
