Huzzah! You can now pay city parking tickets online. (Not that anyone associated with The Commonspace has ever had a parking ticket ...)
Other cities using the same payment system include Cambridge, DC, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Raleigh and LA. We're in the big leagues now, baby!
UPDATE, 4/5: Okay, Amanda is reporting in here to say that, based on her most recent parking ticket (uh, again, not that there's ever been more than one, heh heh...), the online payment system doesn't work. She entered her ticket number and is repeatedly told that it does not exist in the system. Sigh.

Come see them in action at The Commonspace this Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m.
