Is there anything more frustrating and completely pointless for a motorist than getting a parking fine? We all know that half the time it's simply a revenue earner for the company or local jurisdiction and it doesn't seem to matter too much whether you are one minute or one hour over your time limit. Parking inspectors take little notice and the fine seems to be exactly the same. Parking.RIP is a new GPS based app for Android and iOS that helps in a number of ways and makes parking fines history.

Parking.RIP was created because many of us have trouble remembering exactly where we parked our vehicles in multi-story car parks or large shopping centers. Not only do we have to work out where we parked but we also have to keep an eye on the time so we can move it before our time limit is up and we incur a fine. With Parking.RIP you can set a timed reminder on your phone along with the location of your vehicle so you know exactly where you parked and when you need to move it before the parking inspectors issue you with a ticket.

All you have to do is to create an account, set the location of where you have parked your vehicle and set the time you want to be reminded. You will receive a scheduled SMS message - or a notification directly through the app - that will include the Google Maps location of your car and any notes that you enter to help you locate it. Here you can include things like the level you parked on, the precise number of the car space and even the registration number of the car if it's a rental.

This Android and iOS app allows you to try the service three times for free and then, if you like it, you can pay a small fee to set unlimited reminders using push notifications to your mobile device. Take note though, while the app can be used anywhere in the world, the SMS messaging service is only available for use in Australia.

Parking.RIP is a very easy to use app for your smartphone that can save you getting fined for overstaying your welcome when parking. With parking lots seemingly getting bigger and bigger, it's hardly surprising that we get confused as to which level we parked on let alone remembering when we have to be back to avoid a fine. That quadruples if you've got a hired vehicle. Trying to recognize it amongst thousands of others can be a nightmare. The app does everything it claims to do and helps you keep track of where you're parked and when you have to get back to it via SMS or directly to the app. For less than the price of a cup of coffee Parking.RIP can make parking tickets a thing of the past.
