Planned for 2011
In 2008 it was mentioned quite a few times that Israel would be the testing center for electric cars and of course, the appropriate parking lots. Israel is worried about the air pollution and the dependency on oil. As this is now becoming more worrisome, Israel is looking forward to doing a test run for the electric cars. The government says that this should become a reality in 2011 and the preparedness has already begun.

Most Common Parking Lots
There are quite a few different parking lots just in Israel. Parking in Israel is made less stressful by these lots, not to say that it completely relieves the problem of parking, but definitely alleviates it a bit. While many of these lots are just on gravel, others are much more sophisticated.
Parking Lots Today
Parking lots are very common these days, as most people in the word today have cars. Even countries like Russia that not so far in the past didn’t have so many cars are in dire need of more parking. Today, the parking lots in Russia can only handle 30% of the necessary parking needed. The same can be said for many countries in Europe and in Israel. Parking just keeps getting more and more complicated.
Parking Sizes and Different Types of Parking Lots
Did you know that parking space size is not regulated globally and in fact, there are huge discrepancies between the size of spaces for parking by country, state and even region? There is even more differences in the styles of parking in different parts of the world. In examining this fact, there is no clear way to say that one is better or worse than another.
Parking Lots Today and in the Past
The parking lots that we are most accustomed to may soon be a thing of the past. Today a parking lot is only a place to store your car for a certain amount of time. This is going to change, as oil becomes more obsolete and cars are using other methods of energy. Energy soon will have to be part of the parking. Israel may be the base for testing parking lots with electric charging stations.
Parking for Early Transportation in the 1400’s
The first known transport began in the 1400’s and was all about horses, and later stagecoaches. As more people began to ride horses, parking became necessary. Horses were parked by tying them to posts, which were lined up, just our modern day parking lots of today have our cars lined up. This type of parking was used until the late 1800’s when automobiles were invented. Until Ford, though, cars were made slowly, so not many people had them. Parking in the early 1900’s still was not a problem. […]
Lack of Parking
Today in most places in the world there is a great lack of parking spaces, the best solution for this problem is more parking lots. Parking lots are able to pick up where the city cannot. Success Parking, with 30 years of creating parking lots, is a great model of how to solve problems with parking. Israel with its small size is coming to the forefront of building parking lots to resolve this very real obstacle. […]
With more cars on the roads than ever and the need for a parking solution, the answer may well be MP Automated Parking. Where the cars are all in storage type facilities as boats are stored today and all of the parking is robotically done. Accordingly, hopefully Success Parking will bring this idea to Tel Aviv to relieve the problems with parking. Israel being a small country has some of the worse parking problems in the world, especially in the major cities.
One evident and erratic thing the car brought was the need for its own storeroom. The early motorcars, expensive playthings for the wealthy, inhabited in old carriage houses or stables. Slowly but surely, the carriage house grew into a structure of its own: a spit-and-polish refurbishing shop for the car, regularly with a chauffeur-cum-mechanic living above and even a gas pump out front.
Success Parking led by Tsahi Merkur realizes that in our world, usually, there are few situations in which one always and with full certainty can say: “This is perfect, one needs nothing else!”.
Think about it. You go to shop a pair of jeans and ask for the right size, inquire about the price, brand etc. while also interested in the density of the material. You hear from a friend how comfortable and sporty the new Landcruiser is, but what you’re looking for is a com-pact inexpensive car in which your wife can bring the kids to school, 3 blocks away from your house. You end up choosing the short cheap sedan.
In the last few years, problems of traffic flow, parking and traffic jams that started in Europe approximately half a century ago, have spread to the rest of the world. The gravity of these problems is confirmed by a multitude of statistical researches and a series of practical steps undertaken by several countries: the establishment of large parking complexes at the entrance to the cities (transfer stops for trains), formal demand towards car owners to own their own parking space as a condition for owning a car has been introduced in many countries and cities.
