Wireless Parking Sensors Being Tested in SF

Yay or Nay: Wireless Parking Sensors

A few of my car driving pals were overjoyed at the announcement that 6,000 of San Francisco's 24,000 metered parking spaces will be equipped with wireless sensors that alert you via mobile and street signs, when a parking space has opened up, hopefully ending that merry-go-round game we all play while trying to park on the city streets.

By accessing a map on your mobile device, or checking out digital maps on special street signs, you can cruise right over to an open spot nearby, and hopefully use less gas in the process.

Currently in its "beta" phase, it sounds like an awesome idea to relieve some road rage. . . in theory. Since I don't own a car, I don't feel the pain that trying to find parking can bring on a regular basis, and it kinda sounds like trouble to me. Imagine five frustrated drivers going for a spot at the same time, trying to snatch it up before anyone else. You catch my drift. So what do you think? Wireless Parking Sensors, yay or nay?
