ParkatmyHouse.com is a new and innovative website that enables local residents with empty driveways and garages, and businesses or venues with unused car parks, to rent them out to drivers needing somewhere to park.
Motorists on their way to a hospital, sports stadium or train station for example, can make an arrangement with a homeowner to use his or her driveway on a one-off or regular, short-term or long-term basis.
ParkatmyHouse.com is being welcomed as a green solution to parking.By reducing on-street parking, the service will help ease traffic congestion and make the roads safer for pedestrians and cyclists. It will also preserve land which would otherwise be used for the construction of new parking facilities and cut down the amount of carbon emitted by vehicles circumnavigating areas in search of a parking space.
ParkatmyHouse.com was founded by 23 year-old Anthony Eskinazi whilst on holiday in San Francisco. Since its launch, the website has featured on BBC radio stations and in nearly all the national newspapers including The Times, The Daily Express and The Observer as well as in an array of international media.
