An elegant solution


An elegant solution

Dale Fraser and his Calgary Parking Authority have a bit of a problem. The public is complaining about the new pay and display system that is being installed in the downtown area. You know the drill. "Can’t find the machines, don’t know how it works, confusing, really don’t want to pay anyway."

The solution:  Give them one free pass.

In other words, the first citation you receive will be voided. It makes for good PR, allows the public to have a training period, and actually allows the authority to find out how many people REALLY are having a problem.

Good call Dale
