New Study Shows How Much Time and Money We Waste on Parking

Dallas actually comes in below the national average of $97 per driver in overpaid cost - a number heavily skewed by New York's $896 per driver, San Francisco's $404 and Los Angeles' $384 in the same category. To overpay means paying more for parking than one actually needs, such as paying for two hours in a parking garage when your doctor appointment only takes 45 minutes.

Across the United Kingdom, drivers spend an average of 44 hours a year searching for their spaces, the study by traffic information supplier Inrix found.

INRIX, which is in the business of selling data, sees solutions in more education about parking options and better use of technology, so people know what parking is available and only pay for what is needed, Pishue said.

Coming back to your vehicle and seeing a parking ticket on the windshield is a punch to the gut that one in every two Dallas drivers experiences in a year, on average.

The study found that the average Seattle driver spends 58 hours every year looking for parking in the city's core, within one mile of the city center.

Of the 6,000 USA drivers who responded to the survey, an alarming 63% reported they avoided driving to a destination due to the challenge of find parking, dramatically impacting local businesses and economic activity.

FCA to shutter Dodge Viper plant in August
The company said it expects to offer the 87 employees affected by plant closure jobs at other FCA locations. Fiat Chrysler renovated and reopened the plant in December 2012 after redesigning and reviving the Viper.

"The search for parking, overpayments and fines is a $96 billion problem in the US", added Pishue.

INRIX found that Dallasites spend a total of over $59 million per year overpaying for parking.

Street parking in Chicago costs an average of $13 for two hours, the highest in any major city, a new report has found. Parking search costs also include the value of wasted fuel and carbon emissions.

Minnesota sues CenturyLink alleging it overcharges customers
The company employs 2,590 people in the state of Minnesota and about 40,000 people nationwide. The complaint gives several examples of customers' accounts of pricing discrepancies.

Motorists are being routinely overcharged because they are forced to buy a set amount of parking time that stretches way beyond their real stay. Parking fines were based on reported frequency and assumed all local tariffs and discounts were applied.
