We feel that current parking enforcement methods are cumbersome, archaic and inefficient. We understand that space is a limited resource and demand is high for convenient parking. Effective parking enforcement and collection activities are a critical part of maintaining an efficient parking management solution. We know that most people resolve their parking violations on their own, but some need a more compelling method of ensuring they pay their debts. When these rules are not enforced, those that follow the rules are forced to carry the burden for those that don’t.
