Did you know…
… that today is the Parking Meter’s Birthday? The first
automatic parking meters were installed in Oklahoma City,
Oklahoma, in 1935. Despite much opposition, the first meters
were installed by the Dual Parking Meter Company; they cost a nickel an hour, and were placed at 20-foot intervals along the curb that corresponded to spaces painted on the pavement. And they’ve been a fixture ever since!
