New technology designed to help drivers find open parking spaces is making it’s way across the country. A new ‘parking app’ is in the works and could become a reality sooner than later!

On study by a professor of Urban Planning at UCLA found that in just one 15 block area of Los Angeles, drivers covered an extra 950,000 miles over the course of a year looking for parking, using an estimated 47,000 gallons of gasoline in the process.

Smart parking systems that use sensors embedded in the road that can tell if spaces are occupied and then communicate with drivers via smartphone apps are popping up. The idea is to cut down on the amount of time people spend circling the block searching for a place to park, wasting fuel and tying up traffic in the process.

Would you just love this new ‘parking app’ or what!
