WORLD'S FIRST PARKING METER
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Where was the world's first parking meter?

Every time you empty your pockets of coins and drop them down the slot, never to be seen again, do you ever wonder where it all began and who's to blame?

Well wonder no more, blame Carl C. Magee who on May 13 1935 filed for a patent and on May 24 1938 received patent number 2,118,318 for parking meters.

The world's first parking meter started robbing commuters on July 16 1935 in Oklahoma City.
