When you drive to a parking lot, the company or municipality that owns the lot determines how many parking slots are available for use. The number of parking slots is based on the number of cars that can fit in the lot at one time.
The company or municipality also sets the price for a parking spot. This price can be a flat fee, or it can be based on how much time you have to spend in the spot.
The price also depends on how busy the lot is.
Once you have found a parking spot, you need to find out how much time you have to spend there. To do this, you use a timer, watch, or cell phone timer.
After you have set the timer, you wait until it goes off. This tells you how long your parking spot is for.
After you have found out how long your parking spot is for, you need to find out how much money you will have to pay for it. To do this, you subtract the price of the spot from your timer’s time measurement.
