This article from the New York Times has nothing at all to do with personal injury clients and Social Security disability claimants, but seeing it made me realize how far we’ve progressed technologically in the past few years. Who could have imagined ten years ago that we’d be able to use our cell phones to locate vacant parking spaces? Here’s an excerpt:
This fall, San Francisco will test 6,000 of its 24,000 metered parking spaces in the nation’s most ambitious trial of a wireless sensor network that will announce which of the spaces are free at any moment.
Drivers will be alerted to empty parking places either by displays on street signs, or by looking at maps on screens of their smartphones. They may even be able to pay for parking by cellphone, and add to the parking meter from their phones without returning to the car.
