4 Tips To Improve Parking Enforcement
Parking enforcement has always been difficult. Big cities constantly struggle with it. Even property managers & owners are familiar with how annoying it can be. Fortunately, technology has alleviated many of these issues and continues to make great strides.
Talking about technology, ParqEx specializes in property technology, including our own parking enforcement app and platform. So, are you looking for ways to keep a steady stream of parkers using your parking spaces? What about gaining some peace of mind regarding security? Do you want more money that can go towards maintenance and future projects? Want an ensured ROI? Then check out our 4 tips to improve parking enforcement.
1) Smart Tech
Mobile enforcement is undoubtedly the new & future-proof technological trend. As you know, ParqEx offers a robust parking enforcement platform and app for property owners and enforcement officers. But did you know we also have a full suite of property technology that ensures efficiency and effectiveness all around? Through the use of ParqEx’s Access Control and License Plate Recognition technologies, enforcement officers now will have detailed information about every vehicle on the property.
With this on-site technology working alongside ParqEx’s Enforcer app, property owners can save and increase their revenue in several ways, but we’ll list three.
- Properties can cut the number of enforcement officers they employ, saving money on gas and wages.
- As our property technology constantly monitors the property, more violations are caught. Thus, more citations are issued, resulting in increased revenue for the property.
- Save on paper tickets, citations, violations, guest passes, etc. With ParqEx’s mobile Enforcer App, everything is paperless!
2) Tow Company
Another critical component of improving your parking enforcement is, of course, finding the right tow company. Sure, that can be a little daunting, but it is undoubtedly worth your while. That being said, through the use of ParqEx, not only can we provide you with our various property technologies, but we can also help pick the best towing company for you.
Do you want to stay out of the drama that ensues almost always after a vehicle is towed? Don’t sweat it! With ParqEx on your side, enforcement officers, tow truck drivers, and our customer support team is ready for any scenario that might happen.
We strongly recommend signage for many reasons. It is excellent for brand recognition, fantastic for marketing purposes, and even attracts new customers. But when it comes to enforcement, proper regulatory signage is vital.
Use signage to guide drivers with signs like “Guest Parking Only,” “Permit Parking Only,” “No Parking,” etc. With these in place, you can ensure that every driver knows the rules and won’t be surprised when they get a ticket for their infraction. If you are looking for customized signage proposals for your property, reach out to the ParqEx sales team and they can help you with your signage requirements.
4) Strict Enforcement
You do not want unauthorized vehicles on your property. We certainly do not want that for you either. With that in mind, you must continue a strict enforcement policy on your property with high enough fines for violations. If your penalties are too low, your property will certainly have repeat offenders whose overall convenience is greater than the price of the fine. (With ParqEx, you can block certain parkers based on their vehicles information. Repeat offenders can be eliminated).
Moreover, be sure to enforce every day of the week. Sure some properties grow quiet over the weekends but still monitor, enforce, and catch any violation. There’s still money to be made here.
Parking is always in demand. With ParqEx’s Enforcement App in play at your property, you can ensure more parkers will use your parking, increase your overall security, and add a new stream of revenue to the property’s pocket.
