In March, the first 1 million parking tickets sold through cell phones services.
In March 2009 in Vienna, Austria more than 1 million parking tickets were sold within one month through cell phone services.
More than one third of all parking tickets in the Austrian capital are ordered by mobile phones.

The customer will send an SMS with the desired parking time, gets a free confirmation and reminder messages and can pay his ticket through his cell phone bill.
