The new parking meters are tough to read

I read with amusement this Nov. 5 article "Learning Curve Proves Too Tough for Parkers at New Meters." On a recent Friday evening my husband and I went to Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. We parked right in front and saw the new meter. We went over to see whether payment was due after 6 p.m. We must have looked quite comical trying to read the instructions in the dark. There is absolutely no way of reading the screen once the sun has set.

Luckily, I have a flashlight app on my iPhone, so there we were shining my phone in order to view the screen. And now that we have changed the clocks back, money will definitely be due when it is dark outside.

We think the new meters are a great idea, but the city better think about charging only during daylight hours.
