Parking Control - Solution Finder 011
Why Your Organisation Needs Vehicle Management and Parking Control
Vehicle management and parking control can be a headache for many organisations. Restricted space availability, reserved parking requirements and the need to deal with inconsiderately parked vehicles present significant challenges.
How to Implement Effective Parking Control
- Introduce an effective parking space reservation system. Individual, reserved parking bays might be highlighted using appropriate signage or secured using lockable, lift out posts. Alternatively, reserved parking might be provided in a formal car park with access controlled at the entrance by means of a rising arm or ramp mechanism.
- Install CCTV cameras to monitor parking areas. CCTV systems have become very affordable in recent years. CCTV cameras watching car parking areas can be effectively monitored from the reception desk.
- Deter unauthorised parking with wheel clamps. Alerting people to the likelihood of being wheel clamped if they park without authorisation by means of appropriate signage is very effective. Be aware of government legislation that was introduced to combat "Clamping Cowboys" and ensure compliance.
- Ensure emergency vehicle access is always clear. Inconsiderate parking costs lives by preventing emergency vehicles reaching the people that need them quickly enough. GoJak Mobile Vehicle Skates can be used to move an offending vehicle out of the way.
- Introduce a one way system using traffic flow plates. Traffic flow plates enforce a one way flow of traffic over the plates, guiding vehicles from the car park entrance to the exit. They will prevent unauthorised car park entry via the exit.
