Automated enforcement gets clever

Automated enforcement of parking regulations deters illegal parking, which obstructs the road and leads to danger and congestion. This enforcement is loss-making, and authorities struggle with costs. Automated closed-circuit television solutions are the most practical but are often unpopular with the public. Systems detect offenders and transmit the data. One challenge of this system is excluding nearby vehicles. Enforcement software uses algorithms and filters to determine what vehicles have committed an offense. Authorities in the United Kingdom have recently granted approval for the use of a single camera to detect stopped vehicles, due to concerns over safety outside schools, where parents often ignore restrictions when dropping children off. Despite some resistance from the public, this automated enforcement system can help authorities enforce regulations cost-effectively.
