Cale replaces honesty boxes in Kent, UK

After successfully operating Cale parking terminals at countryside sites across Kent for many years, Kent County Council have recently installed Cale MP104 terminals at four further locations.

However, this was not considered satisfactory, as much revenue was estimated to be lost through visitors not paying at the honesty box, and car park assistants were tied up collecting money, as well as sometimes causing traffic congestion at the car park entrances.

It was decided that the installation of parking terminals would be a much more efficient means of collecting the parking fees. Cale parking terminals are easy and quick to use for the motorist, which keeps queuing to a minimum. It was also predicted that there would be much greater compliance with visitors paying for their parking, providing important and valuable revenue to contribute towards the cost of maintaining and enhancing the facilities at the sites. As the terminals now collect the parking fees, time previously spent collecting money can now be better deployed with other useful tasks.

Because some of the terminals would occasionally have poor exposure to sunlight, combined with very high usage levels, it was decided that the solution would be to provide terminals that could operate with solar power, but were also able to operate on mains power when necessary.

Cale terminals are also ideal for relatively remote countryside locations, as they have a proven track record of being reliable. As the Cale terminals are made of stainless steel as standard, they also retain an excellent cosmetic appearance over many years and provide enhanced resistance to corrosion and vandal attacks.
