Did You Know Your Cell is Also a Parking Meter?

Or at least it's about to be. Vancouver is in the process of becoming the first city to enable drivers to make meter payments via cell phone. Once you sign up for an account, you can pay for any amount of parking and then as the time is running out, you'll receive a text message and you can add minutes without having to go back to your car. Verrus Mobile Technologies is the company behind the project and they make their share through a 30 cent surcharge.
