Technologically Advanced Parking Meter Shows Its Stuff in San Francisco

Photo Violation Technologies Corp. (PVT) is pleased to announce its PhotoViolationMeter (PVM) has just completed a successful trial with the Port of San Francisco.
Over the course of the trial, the PhotoViolationMeter delivered on its promise to make paying for parking easier for customers while increasing parking revenue for the Port.

Every Way To Pay feature gives customers a variety of payment The PhotoViolationMeters options, including coin and credit card. During the trial, as high as 86% of parking fees collected by the PhotoViolationMeters were paid by credit card. The PhotoViolationMeters wireless network capability allows for instant, real-time authorization of customers credit cards.

Customers who used their credit card could also take advantage of the systems No-Fine patent pending feature, which bills time automatically to a customers credit card. An in-ground sensor detects when the car drives away and stops billing. This feature allows drivers to park worry-free, knowing they will not run out of time and receive a violation, while paying for only the time used.

The self-enforcing PhotoViolationMeter, equipped with a digital camera to photograph vehicles in violation, simplifies revenue collection for municipalities by allowing them to re-deploy parking meter personnel, while issuing violation notices to 100% of parking violators, thus increasing parking revenue. PVTs PhotoViolationMeters generated over five times the North American average number of violations in each stall per month during the six month San Francisco trial.

PVTs system of in-ground sensors and PhotoViolationMeters also provided the Port of San Francisco with valuable data regarding parking usage.

The PhotoViolationMeter is also currently engaged at a trial site in Vancouver and in May 2007 will begin a six-month trial in Niagara Falls, NY.
