Edited 3 Years Ago by mike_2000_17: Fixed formatting

just a suggestion: use code tags and indentations. might make us actually willing to read the above code.
as far as I can tell, your code is doing exactly what you programmed it to do.
doubt a lot of parking attendants will use it, though, same cost to park for one hour as for parking for a hundred hours? hehe :)
