Free Parking for Senior Citizens
February 15, 2016 3:32pm CST
One thing I hate is missing out on something free, because I didn't know about it! A friend recently pointed out a free service in my city centre that will save me a little money over a year. For a small initial payment senior citizens here can have free parking on those parks that have a parking meter. Yes, there's restrictions, it only applies between 9 a.m. and 12 noon. However, that's the times I'm most likely to want it. I go into town often, to the library and to the main post office, as that's where our business post office mail box is. So, now I have paid my annual fee and our car displays a golden seniors parking permit. Now, rather than park in a free spot and have to walk a few blocks, taking up valuable parking time, I can park wherever I want during those morning hours. There are definitely advantages to getting older.

Yes there are. One of the local grocery stores has a sign on a parking spot close to the doors for senior citizens to park there. A lot like the handicap signs, but for senior citizens. They also have one for expectant mothers. I'm glad you found out about the free service and are able to take advantage of it.
