BRIGHTON BEACH - Parking problems on Atlantic Avenue will soon be eased by municipal meters, says the Department of Transportation (DOT).

The DOT will take out individual meters on blocks and install centralized, single meters along the roadway. Transportation officials say the change will create more parking spaces because drivers can park where there?s room, whether or not an individual meter is present. The muni meters will be installed by the end of December.

The DOT says other areas, like Brighton Beach, have had success with the meters. However, many residents say they still have a hard time finding parking because people take up multiple spots.
