BROOKLYN - Drivers may soon be able to phone the meter instead of feeding it in person.

The city plans to test new ?pay by phone? parking meters that warn motorists as the time winds down and invites them to buy extra minutes without returning to their cars. After a one-time registration online, drivers will simply use an app or text message to enter the number of the meter they are parking at and the amount of time they wish to purchase.

The city plans to equip about 300 parking spots with the new technology in the coming months.
