The District is looking at a variety of parking payment options.
In approximately a month, drivers in D.C. will see expanded pay-by-cell parking and multi-space meter parking options.
And John Lisle, with D.C.'s Department of Transportation, says there will also be a pay-by-license-plate number option.
"The parking enforcement officers either using a car-mounted or handheld device -- a camera that can recognize license plates -- they would be able to tell if you have paid or not," Lisle says.
Other options include having some spaces with embedded sensors to detect if they're occupied, which could be used to help motorists find parking.
Using some of these options such as the pay-by-cell has an additional cost associated with it. Lisle says the city will develop long range plans based on user feedback.
