August 17, 2011 |  9:49 am

Downtown Los Angeles is experimenting with a "dynamic pricing" program for its parking meters to decrease traffic congestion and the time drivers spend hunting for a spot. Rates will change based on  demand, using sensors to track traffic at sidewalk meters and in public parking facilities, according to The Times' news story. Officers will set most meter rates at the beginning of the month, but what happens if the technology gets a mind of its own? Here's cartoonist Ted Rall's take:
