ParkingEye keeps its peepers on your parked plates

Just when we thought we were out of the woods when it came to parking tickets, boom, some company called ParkingEye has to go and make it easier for the metermaids to tag our cars with fines.
The system is analagous to the red-light and speeding cameras mounted on many lampposts nowadays—it tracks cars entering the lot (we won’t even touch the Big Brother implications) and immediately begins a countdown until it’s ticket time. Perhaps most frightening, however, is that it was debuted at this year’s ParkEx and Traffex convention—the metermaids have a convention now?
Dear lord, save us all.
