Our Downtown Parking Strategy is enforced using an advanced license plate recognition system installed in our parking enforcement vehicle. If you see this vehicle patrolling, it is important to remember the following:
- The parking enforcement vehicle travels in the turning lanes.
- It makes frequent stops in turning lanes and on the side of the road.
- It drives close to parked vehicles to capture images correctly but does so at a safe speed as to avoid doors opening and pedestrian traffic.
- The parking enforcement vehicle is for parking enforcement and is unrelated to COVID-19 enforcement.
