Parking app helps drivers save time searching for a spot

Parking app helps drivers save time searching for a spot

Research has shown that drivers currently waste 106 days of their lives searching for a spot to park but new technology hopes to remedy the problem.

JustPark is the online service that lets you park wherever and whenever via your smartphone.

Using the app, JustPark-registered drivers can find, book and navigate to a parking space. There are currently more than 100,000 parking spaces to choose from across the UK.

The free-to-download JustPark app eliminates the time spent circling the streets looking for a suitable spot  an inconvenience said to cost the average driver 106 days during their life.

Drivers can choose whether to input their final destination or search for parking around them while on the go. They then browse a selection of convenient parking spaces, from car parks and hotels to homes and pubs.

Motorists can explore location details, pricing and reviews left by previous drivers. Once they have chosen and paid for a space, they are directed to their destination.

JustPark founder Anthony Eskinazi said: "In 2014, no driver should have to experience the stress and uncertainty of circling the streets for that elusive parking space. JustPark gives drivers the convenience of finding and reserving an affordable parking space in moments. Just as we use apps to order taxis and takeaways, parking is finally being brought out of the Dark Ages."

To download the app, search for JustPark on the Apple app store.
