Grush Hour A Refreshing Perspective on Congestion Management

Grush Hour is a parking blog written by Ben Grush Founder of Skymeter Corp.  They offer an interesting parking service which allows for the convenience of paying for parking usage monthly.  Their systems monitor how much time your vehicle is parked in a certain space, and charges accordingly.  The hassle of searching for coins and the worry of a parking ticket is over.

In Chicago, where parking violations are enforced by an army of Chicago Revenue “officers”, this is particularly useful.  Also, with it currently being winter in Chicago, not having to walk to an from pay boxes in the snow in during this bitter cold would be unbelievable!

As the world approaches having over two billion parking spaces, and has to deal with the environmental, political, and economic consequences of this, Grush Hour offers interesting perspectives and solutions.
