LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The
city of Louisville is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on new parking
meterssome drivers really don't like.
The complaints from
residents state the meters were literally too tall for some people to use.
Never the less, the Parking
Authority of River City is spending more than $284,000 to install the
computerized parking meters downtown.
When they were testing out
those new meters this summer, PARC put the larger meter heads on top of existing
That made the meters so
high, people 5'1'' or shorter couldn't see the screen.
One driver showed us how
he had to use a step stool just to make sure he put in enough money.
In response to our story PARC
took down those downtown test meters.
This week, PARC was
installing 537 of the style meters --- permanently, around the courthouse,
along Muhammad Ali and a few other places.
This time PARC cut back
the post three inches before putting on the new meter head, making the new meter height 4' 9'', which they hope
will take care of any issues with shorter drivers not being able to use them.
PARC said the new meters
will increase revenue and convenience because they accept credit cards and
overall they should be a win for the city.
