Haifa has joined the growing list of cities that allow parking to be paid for by mobile telephone, reports www.local.co.il. Drivers in Haifa will now be able to pay for parking by calling *4500 or by sending an SMS to the same number. According to the report, drivers subscribing to the service will receive a special ticket that hangs from their car window and that enables municipal inspectors armed with computers to check whether a parked car has paid for its time. Drivers can arrange to receive a reminder 15 minutes before their time runs out, and the report said there are no subscription or other costs for using the service. Parking in Haifa costs NIS 4.80 per hour, or a daily fee of NIS 17.80.
