The geniuses at the City of Cleveland must have a brother in law who owned this company or have debts to the Mob to pay off as they spent God knows how much on this unique, state of the art, moronic, sometimes working Smart Park System that I am now paying for each time I go here.
In theory, you drive in and look around and see green above a spot and it's available, there is an open space and you pull in. You see red that must mean a car is parked there. We are about 4 months into this system being in operation and it's sometimes worth it. There are even big LED signs that constantly update at how many free or full spaces there are, when the signs are working? However, people are now racing thru the parking structure like Dale Earnhardt on Turn 2 at Daytona on the last lap. Nobody "looks" as they drive thru the structure now, they are all looking "UP" at the pretty lights. As I was walking out tonight after I saw Cleveland EMS picking up the carcass of a wounded road warrior into a squad? Smart Park strikes again I am pretty sure seeing the Cleveland Police we standing and talking to a guy in a Chevy Van parked about where the stretcher was being rolled away from. Add in the parking rates have increased 30% and
it's just a cute Christmas Light display year round in the CLE parking garage…
