Car parking meters in Dubai are getting a smart makeover.
They will soon feature interactive touch screens that allow motorists to enter their vehicle registration number.
Once the project is implemented, drivers will no longer have to display paper tickets on their dashboards.
The advanced meters will be installed in phases, from the first quarter of this year until the end of 2022.
According to the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), the new eParking system will help eliminate offences related to the improper display of parking tickets, besides enabling the payment of parking fees for motorbikes.
