Have You Ever:
Scoured the streets to find parking downtown?
Worried about cars in the crosswalk around your child’s school?
Felt frustrated with a car parked in a tow-away zone and blocking traffic during your rush hour commute?
You’re not alone. The automated parking enforcement program will help solve these problems.
What is Automated Parking Enforcement?
This spring, spotting parking violations in EPark and time-restricted zones will shift from manual to automatic. Currently, parking patrol officers manually write parking tickets to those who haven’t paid for parking and place them on the windshield. Soon, digital cameras mounted on vehicles will automatically spot these violations and tickets will be sent by mail.
By having digital cameras do this work instead of parking patrol officers, it will help free up more officers to tackle important parking challenges around school drop-off and pick-up zones, in front of businesses, residences, during rush hour tow-away times, during seasonal snow parking bans, and street sweeping parking bans.
