Y2K-type glitch is causing NYC parking meters to reject credit cards

A software glitch is causing parking meters throughout New York City to reject credit and prepaid parking cards, The New York Times reports.

So, at the stroke of midnight Wednesday, the city rang in a bug reminiscent of those feared around Y2K, which predicted computer systems would crash.
