Greatest Parking Garage Ever
 
[url=http://www.woehr.de/en/projekte/budapest_m730/index.htm]Wöhr Parking Systems - Wöhr Multiparker 730 - Budapest, Hungary[/url]

This would be especially great in NYC where parking SF is at a premium.

Pretty cool but I could see it being a pain when there is a big rush.

It could work for a high dollar place that does not have a bunch of trafic but not at any busy parking lot. I could not find if this was actually a working parking lot or just a demo.

Doubtful we'll see anything like this in the U.S.A., mainly due to labor unions and building codes. Our government holds us back too much from implementing these kinds of things.

Labor Unions are not "our government"

Explain to me which building codes you believe would hold us back from this? How would it be any different from any new construction. You don't think they have govt. regulations in Hungary or Germany? <sigh>

The reason this wouldn't work in the US is b/c of cost and existing infrastructure. Cool as this tech is, current parking garages work fine. On the other hand, the outlay for one of these things is probably astronomical just for the materials/technology. Existing garages would have to be entirely re-engineered and new construction would still need top of the line tech. In all but a very few places, would such a garage provide markedly better service to justify the (likely) much higher parking fees? Would you pay double to wait in line at rush hour? 2-4 minutes/car adds up, even with 10 lanes. In downtown Balt./Washington, when 500 office workers come to get their cars between 5:00 - 5:15, 50 people in each lane means over an hour and a half wait for the last guy (and that's assuming a perfect 2 mins for each car).

It's simple economics: Cost v. Return on one of these things would be completely unprofitable. It has nothing to do with govt. or labor unions.

Your dummyness never ceases to amaze me. First off them socialists have more government hoops they have to jump through. Secondly, [URL="http://www.autoblog.com/2007/03/05/slideshow-of-nycs-first-automated-parking-garage/"]we already have them here[/URL].

Those would be so handy in downtown DC and the surrouding areas.

They also have higher tax rates to fund these kind of technological projects, but we're heading that way.

Why? Is the Government going to take over parking garages?

It's Buster...it's too easy.


Can you confirm they have less sophisticated "automatic" parking garages in NYC. I've seen parking lots that stacked cars in metal racks pretty much everywhere in NYC.
