    Santa Monica CA has meters that can sense when a car leaves to reset it back to zero time left. Other cities probably have these too.

    You are right simpsonfan…All meters switch to 0 when you leave and then laugh at someone parking who thinks they are going to get a few mins. free. I used to drive around the block to find one before, but now I just find parking free lots. I pay enough for everything else…

    Some cities used to leave time on the meter. It was like found money.

    Us cripples with a disabled placard or plates don’t have to pay at parking meters(in calif).

    It isn’t worth free parking or a reduced rate bus pass being a gimp.

    Not the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro. if there is any time left. it stays ticking down till the time runs out.

    If you don’t know, you’re not a plugger.

    Interesting how they circle the block dozens of times looking for a meter with the most time still on it, so they can save 50 cents …. then they go into Starbucks and pay $4.75 for a black coffee.

    I did this just today BUT:

    Wouldn’t drive around the block more than once because then it’d cost more in gas than to pay the meter.

    I NEVER drink coffee at Starbuck’s. Can’t figure why people pay so much…

    I either make coffee at home or buy from the co-op at work (one dollar for large mug.) That’s about as high-priced my coffee ever gets.

    Found meter with 1/2 hour left on it only a few car lengths from where I wanted to go…and was only in the store a few minutes.

    I guess here in the boonies of WV we don’t have the new resetting meters yet.

    Be Blessed.
