This iOS app may solve one of the most annoying problems with city life

If you live in a city and you own a car, chances are you’ve gotten an annoying parking ticket because you forgot to move your car off your street on the day your city rolls through it with a street sweeper. The good news, however, is that driving statistics app MetroMile is working on a new system that will send an alert to your smartphone on the day your street is due to be cleaned.

The location-based app will apparently be able to detect where your car is parked and will then cross-reference your parking spot with the city’s weekly cleaning schedule so it can alert you within 12 hours that you’ll need to move your car. MetroMile says that the street sweeper alert system is just a pilot program in San Francisco for the time being, although it could definitely expand to other cities if it proves to be successful.

If you live in San Francisco and you want to try it out, you can sign up for the beta on MetroMile’s website and then download MetroMile’s app from the iOS App Store. There’s no word yet on if MetroMile plans to make a version of its app for Android or any other platforms.
