46 Innovations in Parking

From Photovoltaic Parking Lots to Floating Car Parks, Parking is Cool

— March 21, 2010 — Autos
Parking is no longer a hassle, thanks to these innovations in parking. I have never been more excited to drive.

I challenge you not to get excited about these innovations in parking. How cool would it be to park in a floating car park? I am already sick of present-day parking spaces and garages. I want the future and I want it now.

Implications - Am I alone? Does anyone else want the future so they can go park-crazy within innovations in parking technologies like these? Photovoltaic parking lots and floating car parks just seem way to bad ass and tempting to say no to. These innovations in parking are hopefully going to come around sooner than you think they will!
