Parking timer


I can't think of anything more annoying than getting a parking ticket. It's just money down the drain, and for no good reason. This little gadget will sound off 5 minutes before your meter is going to expire and again when the time is up so you can avoid costly tickets. Of course you'll have to remember to set it, but if the Parking TImer is hanging off your car keys, it might just become second nature to reach for it.

Get it at the Dog House (currently delivers in the UK only, but may ship internationally if you call).

Tried this, and am returning it.
(a) no way of cancelling/altering timer without going through full 90 minute settings.
(b) timer can be accidentally stopped in pocket
and, most importantly:
(c) alarm is almost inaudible and can only be heard with ear pressed to timer.
