Being a few cents short for street parking and you might end up short more than one hundred dollars in parking fines, depending on where you've left your car. The PARKd Parking Meter concept leaves no room for confusion about cost and your required return time, making it a whole lot less likely that you'll acquire a second, unwanted ticket.

Conceived by DCA Design International, this cutting-edge curbside stand integrates an intuitive dial. Turn it and it will adjust the price relative to the expiration time, informing you of the exact clock hour and minute that you must collect your vehicle so that you don't have to do the math.

The PARKd Parking Meter looks undoubtedly sleek and hi-tech and it conveniently accepts coins, credit cards and even an innovative 'contactless' means of paying for your spot with a smartphone app.
