Parking Meter Hack?!!?

25 posts in this topic

Ok so i was reading my new favorite magazine, The Skateboard Magazine, today and there was this little section on how to max out the time on parking meters! it was really sick

it said that if you file a penny down from the top (kind of from the top right) down to about the top of his forehead and you put it in a parking meter it will max out the time on the thing!! it had pics and everything

has anyone ever heard of this before? or better yet tried it?! im positive that they did this in california so maybe it only works on certain meteres there, but i would really like to find out if this is for real and WHY it works as well.

note: i noticed that the meter they do it to is different than the ones around here because it has a digital timer and it only has 1 slot for the change as apposed to the nickel dime and quarter slots in the ones here.

I remember back in he day you could take one of the peices of metal that fall out of the streetsweeper brushes and jam that in the meter and turn the nob then rip it out and it would max out thoes old meteres. I didnt have a car then so I would just walk around giveing people free time and saveing people from tickets

there was some old lady on my local news that got arrested for doing that. i thought it was hilarious. i could defenitely go for some pics of how the penny should look like though. i tend to screw things up when i don't have a picture to go by.

Hey SnakeEyes

You think these are the same as in my city? Cause parking is a bitch up here. Can you help a brother out and let me know.

Also I got a 404 on the link. even after clicking that smiley.

I can host it on my server if you people send it to me.
