Spotted outside Good Sam Hospital.


I didn't want to spend the $4.00 to find out, but I am intrigued to know how this works. Does the meter register $1.00 per hour until the magic sum of $4.00 is inserted, at which time it flips to 10 hours? Is the rate really 40¢ per hour? Is this some sort of Parking Dept. mystery math and I should be submitting this photo to Failblog.org?

You get 15 minutes for each quarter, but instead of jumping from 3:45 to 4:00, it goes 3:45 to 10:00. Similar meters are on various outskirts of Downtown.

I still don't get it.

My favorite thing about these sorts of meters is when they 'fail' and blink red FAIL. At which point you can then legally park. But, they 'randomly' reset themselves and 'unfail' at mysterious intervals. So if you park at a FAIL meter and come back and find a ticket and the meter is fine, you FAIL...

Such a scam...
