Feeding the meter

parking.jpgOn Tuesday a driver in the state of Lower Austria found a novel solution to the ever-pesky problem of parking in a crowded urban area. Believing she’d found the entrance to an underground garage (and, presumably, failing to think to herself ‘hey, that garage wasn’t there yesterday,’ most probably because she doesn’t think in English), the driver promptly entered the facility. That the entrance was in fact to a pedestrian tunnel only became apparent after her car had descended the stairwell. A valet couldn’t have done a better job, and no pedestrians were harmed. After some assistance from the local fire department in extracting her car, the woman was able to continue searching for a parking place.
