Difficult for seniors
Share with others:
I am wondering if the new payment machines for parking were tested with senior citizens and the handicapped before being purchased. Remembering one's license plate number is the least of problems, having to walk to the nearest machine is -- then it is often the case that bikes are padlocked to the station restricting access.
The reflection of light in the screen has been cited. Another problem is the amount of finger or hand strength needed to punch the buttons.
All in all, its not clear who is helped by the new machines.
