Parking Meters – Legal?? –
August, 1947 …. Parking meters were used in Downtown Minot. The Taxi companies challenged the legality of having parking meters. Apparently the taxi companies opposed the use of parking meters by the City of Minot. The North Dakota Supreme Court ruled that inadequate steps had been taken to test the constitutionality of the right to use meters and therefore Minot could continue to use parking meters to regulate the use of its streets. I’m not sure when the meters were done away with but it was sometime after this.
