Pay-and-display machines control multiple spaces on a block. The spaces are not marked, but the pay and display zone is indicated by a sign and line at either end. Upon depositing either coins or inserting a credit card, a ticket is issued by the machine. The ticket should be placed face up on the car dashboard with the expiry time clearly visible.
Another common form of street parking is metered parking. Each meter controls a single, marked space. These devices accept payment by coins. A 10-minute time allowance is granted by the city for all time-limited offences.
