Here’s where what should be an excellent system went off the rails: I was not permitted to add time to the meter via the app. I was informed by the DOT that while I can extend my time by paying at the meter, I could not do so through the app. That would be an insane feature, right? The stated reason was that they want to promote parking turnover, something everyone on the planet knows is not going to happen. So instead of a wonderfully convenient and well-working system, the city instead had to go one step further, make it useless, and just annoying enough to shave hours, if not days off my life, by forcing me to, yet again, have to run out to wherever I parked, in all weather, shove my card in the meter, punch the required buttons and then stick another little receipt in my window.
