    A new blight on the city. These frustrating machines don’t make sense, take TOO LONG to use, and cost much more. (and the ticket gets stuck curled up in it, where your fingers can’t reach on my 1st use!) I will be AVOIDING downtown parking meters, even though I love it here. Ralph Beccer was sold A BILL OF GOODS. This morning, a long line of frustrated users cursed the crazy box in ft of Market Street Grill. AWFUL HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!!

    Even after using the machine for the 3rd time, here are the problems.
    1) too far, 2) too confusing, 3) too expensive, 4) instructions do not make the machine FLOW, 5) MUST type in your spot # 6) ticket gets stuck
