Day 128: Pay to Park

Most of downtown Portland is "Pay to Park". After finding a parking spot, you put money (or credit card) into a payment machine and receive a small ticket to place in the curb-side window.

Most curb-side parking has a limit as to how many hours you can stay parked in that one area ranging from 15 minutes to 5 hours.
