The fact is, our cities are overcrowded and there are more cars on the roads these days than ever before. If you have no off street parking where you live, it's rare that your car will be parked in the same place every night. ParkingMaestro is a new smartphone app developed in Australia that uses a unique algorithm to work out where your car is parked and how long it will take for you to reach it before your time expires.
ParkingMaestro is an iOS app (with Android and other smartphone platforms coming soon) that is set to save motorists hundreds of dollars in parking fines when using regulated street parking at home, at work or while out socially.
