It is natural to associate automatic license plate readers with just law enforcement agencies and government organizations. After all, most ALPR stories that make the headlines are usually about the good guys capturing the bad guys with automatic license plate reader technology assistance along a crowded interstate and busy city street. But this kind of technology can be pivotal for parking operations, both small and large. Whether you are the owner of a small business that relies on curbside parking, in charge of parking or security at a school, or responsible for the daily management of parking at a hotel, casino, or commercial business, you need peace of mind. Consider all of the ways automatic license plate readers can significantly increase the accuracy, efficiency, and accountability of enforcement. Read on to learn more!
Time Limit Enforcement
Your facility has passed ordinances limiting how long a car can be parked on the street if you’re a smaller business. How much business do you want to risk losing if one vehicle won’t leave their spot? By tracking the length of time a vehicle is parked near your business, the municipality can create a real essential space turnover, which can benefit your business, consumers, and municipality. Law enforcement drives past parked vehicles with the ALPR technology, which scans the tags. As each plate is scanned, a timer will start. Enforcement can drive by later, and new plates are scanned with their timer started, but at the same time, the system will generate an alarm for any vehicle that has overstayed the time limit. The municipality creates an ideal parking environment suitable for both business and customers through accurate and efficient enforcement.
Better Security for Your Parking Facility
Not only does our automatic license plate readers promote safety, but this technology can help security personnel figure out a lot about the vehicle that is entering or parked in their facility lot or garage. Security personnel can now scan and see if the vehicle parked or entering is associated with any previous crimes or offenses. This is very helpful for those working in industries with valuable products or data – like a casino, bank, or government building. Gatekeeper’s very own ALPR systems can also capture hundreds of license plates per minute for improved efficiency and accuracy during this process.
What Does This Lead To?
Employing an airtight way of tracking your parked vehicles and enforcing your organization’s rules will no doubt lead to a much-improved compliance rate, better turnover, increased business, and an overall safer and better experience for your customers and employers alike.
