The traffic situation in municipalities depends on a large number of variables. Particularly in the larger cities, both traffic density and parking pressure is very dynamic. These factors are also often inter-related. For example, easily 20 per cent of the people driving around in an urban environment are looking for somewhere to park. In a busy neighbourhood where there tend to be fewer parking places available, the traffic density quickly increases as a result.
This interaction makes the development and enforcement of effective parking management all the more complex. Policymakers and managers who wish to successfully manage this complexity need flexible solutions which enable them to respond quickly to actual changes in the traffic density and parking situation. Parkius has developed a powerful application to provide the most effective support possible in these situations. This solution works on the basis of combined up-to-date enforcement data.
The application uses this data to provide an accurate overview of the current traffic situation. On the basis of this overview managers can automatically plan the deployment of their enforcement teams and scanning equipment. The tool then automatically generates specific assignments which team leaders can use to direct the work of their enforcement teams on the street. This provides parking attendants with a flexible and effective response to rapidly changing parking and traffic situations.
