How can I keep drivers from parking for too long?

 

Real estate is a valuable resource, especially in dense areas like cities and busy places like airports and shopping centers. Facility managers need to know how many people are using this valuable asset.

  • Displaying available parking spots creates a welcoming atmosphere beneficial for drivers and shop owners alike.
  • Since parking revenues provide an important share of a city’s yearly income, it is crucial that these areas favor high vehicle turnover and discourage drivers from parking for too long.

Techniques

 

  1. Regulation: Some parking areas set specific time limits for parking. Dense urban areas, for example, often allow cars to park for no more than an hour.
  2. Economic: The more you stay, the more you pay. Some cities and airports implement a dynamic pricing policy based on parking duration: tariffs increase over time, and the parking fee for the first hour is usually much more affordable than the parking fee for the last hour. Some companies also organize dynamic parking fees based on the parking area or the time when a vehicle arrives (e.g. peak hours).

Automatic real-time alerts when a vehicle overstays its welcome

 

Unfortunately some drivers just don’t follow the rules. They either stay beyond their maximum parking duration, or remain parked for longer than they have paid for. Facility managers need to be able to identify these vehicles.

Manual technique. In the past, facility managers hired parking enforcement officers who were required to walk around the entire parking area and manually check each vehicle for overstays. This was done by verifying parking duration tickets behind the windscreen or by checking number plates.

Real-time alerts. Today more and more facility managers are turning to smart parking solutions and real-time alerts. A smart parking system produces real-time alerts when a vehicle overstays. These alerts can be sent directly to facility managers or parking enforcement officers by email, SMS or push notification. Real-time alerts can be sent when parking spots are monitored with IoT devices, such as ground sensors or cameras. Once a parking enforcement officer receives a real-time alert, he or she can head straight to the vehicle’s location without wasting any time.
