UPI News Service, 05/30/2012 

Vertically challenged residents of Louisville, Ky., said the new parking meters installed around the Hall of Justice are too tall for them to reach.

Rick Lombardo, who stands at 5 feet, 1 inch, said the new meters, which are 5 feet, 5 inches tall, have upward-angled screens that do not allow shorter motorists to see the screens on the meters, WAVE-TV, Louisville, reported Wednesday.

Tiffany Smith, assistant director of the Parking Authority of River City, said the meters were designed to allow motorists to pay with credit cards as well as coins.

"If they are well received by our citizens and visitors PARC will consider a purchase to install them permanently," Smith said of the meters, which were installed in mid-May.

She said the meters were put atop existing poles that will be shortened by workers if they become permanent. Officials said they may consider cutting the poles sooner to allow shorter motorists to see the displays.
