I realize this is an old post and I'm not necessarily directing it @armadillo just wondering in general... If you can't trust the guy with the kippah who works in the store why can you trust the guy with the kippah or is supposed to come check that everything is to a certain standard? What makes one more trustworthy than the other ? There have been plenty of mashgiachs caught "lying" or taking bribes to let things slide etc. 

Eventually if you're eating out it all comes down to trust, no?
Essentially, yes.

There is however, in all industries, a path to minimize risk or corruption by employing a 3rd party to oversee and regulate without a direct benefit from profits.

Been a while since I rented a car. Last time I had to use the little yellow electronic box for parking that you stick in the window. Has the parking gone to an app yet?

Can you explain how an American can use Pango with a rental car?

I tried downloading Pango and I couldn't register without a phone number that starts with 05.

Thanks

Any foreigner have experience signing up for Pango?

Also, where can I rent a yellow electronic parking box? Does Hertz rent them?

Why can't you just sign up for pango?
Hertz doesn't not rent those yellow parking meters. You can buy them in a gas station.
