San Francisco Street Parking Spaces Will Be Monitored

The technology is sub-contracted with Streetline, Inc. It uses small recievers mounted on the light poles and sensors that are epoxied (glued) on the street at every spot. SFpark is a $23 million project, of which $18 million will come from federal sources. There is a cell phone app that allows you to find parking, or know if it's too crowded to try. Meter rates will adjust according to demand. Disabled cards might br monitored more closely too. They weren't designed for long term parking, but in a city with few Parking Garages, there isn't a choice, especially if you depend on your car and can't walk. Links to more info. Pictures are from Feb 12 install in Mission district test zone.
