Bethlehem debuts pocket parking meters

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

There's a new parking meter in Bethlehem, and it's pocket-sized.

The Bethlehem Parking Authority is now offering personal parking meters.

Officials say the Easy Park device is convenient and easy to use.

Motorists use a touch screen to indicate the cost per hour of where they're parked and how long they'll stay.

The personal meter then deducts the cost from a pre-paid account.

The meter only deducts money for the time used.

But, if you're parked longer than the time you indicated, you could get a ticket!
