So today, while out and about in downtown Red Deer, I came upon a parking meter. Not unusual, I know!
So, I inserted not one, or two but three dimes and then a nickel before my 4 minutes popped up on the meter.
As I then entered the street side business and mentioned my "ordeal", was I told about something perhaps many of you already know...the City of Red Deer has introduced the parking meter card.
For those of you who do not know (like myself), it is exactly what you're thinking. A reusable card that is inserted into parking meters to fill up parking time.
First chance I got I visited the City of Red Deer website, and low and behold what a wonderful thing - reloads, fills the meter, returns what it doesn't use, no expiry.
Anyhow, I thought this was great information worth sharing.
