2008_07_wireless.jpgIn the near future, info about available parking spots could be displayed on street signs or sent to any phone with Internet capability, if New York follows the lead of San Francisco, which is testing the program. The new technology relies on embedded-in-the-pavement wireless sensors that detect the presence of a vehicle. The Sun reports that Councilman John Liu is pushing for it, but Bloomberg is concerned that it will cause reckless competition for parking spots: "We don't want people to start speeding and running past red lights." That would be unthinkable.
