Let the lights guide you

Every car driver knows the problem. You are in a parking garage and are trying to find a spot. You see an empty space a few meters ahead but when coming closer you realize that there is already a small car that you just didn’t see.

Finns found a pretty neat way to avoid long searching. Small lights above every parking spot that are visible from far away indicate if they are free (green) or already occupied (red). So instead of trying to spot a gap between all the cars you just have to look up and will find space in no time.

Since most parking garages allow free parking for the first three, four or five hours (not in the center) these lights also indicate when the parking time is over through starting to blink. 

This great system really saves you time and nerves.
