The parking disc has existed in Germany since the early 1960s. These regulate how long the parking period in a public car park may last. This is done by setting the time of the start of the parking period. There have also been corresponding ones for about as long brackets for the parking disc or parking ticket from the parking ticket machine. Since we are in the digital age, the classic blue parking disc with the white dial and black numbers has also been digitized. The electronic parking disc is becoming increasingly popular.
Classic or modern
The first models of an electronic parking meter were already launched in the year 2005 on the market. However, there are very strict regulations for this. Because not every electronic parking meter is accepted by the inspectors in the cities and municipalities. Incidentally, this is also the case with a manual parking disc. It is important that an electronic parking meter at the front has a picture of the traffic sign 314 Parken. Devices without this picture are useless. They are not accepted by the law enforcement officers as a parking disc. It is also important that the numbers are clearly and clearly recognizable. The shape of the electronic parking meter is not decisive here. Ideally, the housing of the electronic parking meter is held on the top in blue. If the device has a black housing, at least the image of the traffic sign 314 Parken should be kept in the typical blue. Only then is the device allowed. Smart electronic parking meters also have an arrow on the top that points to the arrival time shown in digital form. And of course the parking disc is allowed NOT run automatically. So that the law enforcement officers who control the parking spaces do not succumb to a misunderstanding, the word "arrival time“Also explained above this arrow. In addition to the classic parking disc size (HxW) 150 mm x110 mm and with a dial display, there are also smaller permissible versions with a digital display.
Place well visible
With all the technology behind the electronic parking disc, a little manual work is required from the driver or user of this electronic tool. Because like the classic parking disc made of "cardboard cover" or plastic, the electronic parking disc must also be placed on the inside of the front disc in a clearly visible manner. With this tool, brackets are definitely an approved aid, actually they are even mandatory! Because a parking disc MUST be in the car on the nearside "Hang" and must not lie anywhere on the dashboard. When attaching the brackets, however, make sure that they are attached in such a way that the digits on the electronic parking disc are always easy to read from the outside. Holders for the electronic parking disc are available with suction cups and are permanently installed. In order to adjust the electronic parking disc, which is fixed on a holder, it does not have to be removed. However, the parking function head of the parking disc should be easily accessible. This button is pressed as soon as the car has been parked in the parking space or the parking lot. After pressing this button, the electronic parking disc automatically shows the starting parking time. A change is not possible. The initial parking time can only be changed by moving the car again.
Of course, always make sure that the battery is fully charged. An empty battery is not an excuse. Well here are parking discs with built-in solar cell. Normally, the cell is enough to keep the battery always fresh.
