Drivers in Vancouver can pay parking meters with your cellphone

This is cool except when somebody hacks the system and you end up paying their meter.

“Parkers in Vancouver can now pay the parking meter with their cell phone.   No more fishing coins out of the car seat or stuffing more money into the meter than you need because you don’t have change.  The user signs up for the service which registers the cell phone number so once the driver calls the city number caller ID takes over and the amount of time desired is entered into the phone. Five minutes before the allotted time is up  a warning is sent via text message and more time can be entered remotely. ”

That is awesome but like i said above……..
