That would be useful

Stuff reports:

In the past financial year, made about $16m from on-street and permit fees, and about $8m more from infringement notices.

Parking revenue in the 2010-11 financial year was $25.8m.

That’s big money – around $100 per person.

Transport portfolio leader Andy Foster said he thought people would appreciate the new “customer-friendly” technology being investigated.

One of the initiatives was a text message service that reminded people when their parking meter was about to run out, and gave them the option of topping up via their phone.

That would be excellent. I use my cellphone to pay most times, and would love that service.
