Parts of the city of Oakland, now use a kiosk system for parking yet some of the meters remain. This causes confusion, to be sure.
Check out the mods to this meter meant to indicate that the parker should not use the meter:
- Removed meter stick
- Gutted coin slot
It would be much nicer to see a sticker pointing the parker to the kiosk since this design mod seems to say: "Don't pay" when the desired message is really: "Don't pay here. Pay over there!".
