In Berkeley, California, the "chopped off" remains of meter poles were a common sight during the 1990s, and parking was largely free (and chaotic) throughout the city until the government installed digital parking meters with very thick poles in 2000.
Alternatives to parking meters are ticket machines (for dashboard display of proof of payment) and machines to accept and electronically record payment by stall number, (known in New York City as the Muni Meter).
Parking meters are usually seen along the curb of a street, but are sometimes used within parking garages as well.

 Clamp meter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Less-expensive clamp meters use an average-detecting rectifier circuit that is then calibrated to read in RMS units; it is assumed in their design that the current is a sine wave of the local mains frequency, that is, either 50 or 60 Hz.
A clamp meter (clamp-on ammeter) is a type of ammeter which measures electrical current without the need to disconnect the wiring through which the current is flowing.
These high-end meters may also replace the transformer secondary winding with a Hall effect sensor that allows accurate readings over a much-wider frequency range, often extending from DC to thousands of hertz and occasionally, for small clamp meters with ferrite cores, extending into the megahertz range.

 Poetry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Robinson Jeffers, Marianne Moore, and William Carlos Williams were three notable poets who rejected the idea that meter was a critical element of poetry, claiming it was an unnatural imposition into poetry.
The increased emphasis on the aesthetics of language and the deliberate use of features such as repetition, meter and rhyme, are what are commonly used to distinguish poetry from prose, but debates over such distinctions still persist, while the issue is confounded by such forms as prose poetry and poetic prose.
Poetry (from Ancient Greek: ποιέω/ποιῶ (poiéo/poió) = I create) is traditionally a written art form (although there is also an ancient and modern poetry which relies mainly upon oral or pictorial representations) in which human language is used for its aesthetic qualities in addition to, or instead of, its notional and semantic content.

The length of the meter, or metric unit (usually corresponding with measure length), is divided almost exclusively into either two or three beats, being called duple meter and triple meter, respectively.
By comparison, a lot of Western classical music is fairly rhythmically simple; it stays in a simple meter such as 4/4 or 3/4 and makes little use of syncopation.

 Time signature - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
N.B. in modern compound meters the beat is a dotted note value, such as a dotted quarter, because the ratios of the modern note value hierarchy are always 2:1.
For all meters, the first beat (the "downbeat") is stressed; in time signatures with four groups in the bar (such as 4/4 and 12/8), the third beat is also stressed, though to a lesser degree.
Assuming the breve to be a beat, this corresponds to the modern concepts of triple meter and duple meter, respectively.

 Metre (music) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Meter is an entrainment, a representation of changing aspects of music as patterns of temporal invariance, allowing listeners to synchronize their perception, cognition, and behaviour with musical rhythms.
Metre or meter is the measurement of a musical line into measures of stressed and unstressed beats, indicated in Western notation by a symbol called a time signature.
Rhythm is distinguished from meter in that rhythms are patterns of durtion while "meter involves our initial perception as well as subsequent anticipation of a series of beats that we abstract from the rhythm surface of the music as it unfolds in time." (London 2004, p.4-5)

 Meter
In compound meter, the top number is the number of subdivided by 3 beats and the bottom number is the note value receiving the subdivided by 3 beat.
For example, a meter with 3 beats per measure with the quarter note receiving the beat is called "3/4" time, and is notated with a "3" in the top number and a "4" in the lower number.
Compound meter is used to notate music that has three instead of two subdivisions per beat.
