Hip parking meter is hip

Hip parking meter

A few years ago the city installed new smart parking meters that accept credit cards and are powered by the sun. But did you know they’re also smart enough to wear clothes and enjoy sports?

Well, this particularly hip parking meter at 21st and Valencia is not only hip, but is also a 49ers fan. Take that, dumb meters.

No toilet stopping

No stopping

No stopping this toilet, folks. If you take a number two here and can’t flush, you’d better plunge it yourself — or you can expect a steep fine from SFMTA. And don’t even ask how they’ll tow you.

(Spotted on Caledonia and 15th St.)

SFpark meters come to the Mission

A swarm of technicians descended on 16th and Mission today, decapitating the old parking meters and sliding in a fancy new “SFpark” meter.

New meters

I’m not sure exactly what’s new, but it appears to be solar powered, accept credit cards (yay!) and the new meters utilise sensors under the vehicle so “the man” knows exactly when to slap you with a hefty parking ticket.

I love the cartoon on this. It expresses anger and silliness at the same time, as if to say “DAMN IT, DO I HAVE TO PARK FOR FREE?!”

Who ya gonna call?

Slimer paid a visit to a string of parking meters along Valencia today. It seems ghosts don’t like paying for parking.

Who ya gonna call?
