parking tickets

A new technology to let parkers pay the meter via smart phone in Uptown Charlotte hit a snag that nearly led to its abandon by city officials. They're now hopeful they 've fixed the problem that led to dozens of erroneous tickets.

No need to ever scrounge for change! That was the promise when the city launched "ParkMobile" in March. A quick phone call or tap of a mobile app would feed the meter at any Uptown street spot.
