As much as 80 percent of traffic on some city streets is estimated to come from motorists driving in search of a parking spot. Mercury news reports on a futuristic system where – the navigation screen in your car's dashboard will display the nearest available street or garage parking. When you find an open space at a meter,  you punch in the meter's ID number into your cell phone, a pavement mounted sensor will detect when you leave, and your credit card will be charged for exactly the number of minutes your car was parked.  You can also use the same system to reserve a parking spot. Some pieces of this vision from experts are already operational.
