Tug Boat Races

New Parking Meters

Another Festive Letters Jingle is played in the heat of September, while Leo sips his tomato and basil hot soup.  Yowan Pearson from Montreal was listening to Episode 616 (Parking Meter Alarm) in which Dick and Leo talked about the price of parking.  In downtown Montreal, most of the parking is 3 or 4 dollars an hour.  Parking meters are now replaced by an electronic parking booth - no need for coins, but you cannot add time to your previous payment.
