    I LIVE in Springfield, Or - a small city with NO PARKING METERS. This is not helpful - it is a self-congratulatory pat on the back to make SOMEone feel ok about not donating to charity or handing out spare change to beggars. These meters are not even outside.
    "You won't find these new meters outside on a sidewalk. They aren't being put up to pay for your car. Instead, you have to go inside one of the sponsoring businesses, like Goodyear, to plug one and ensure that your spare nickels, dimes and quarters will help feed your hungry neighbors."

    Not much help for the homeless there, is there?
