New Parking Meter Provides Multiple Ways to Pay For Space
Photo Violation Technologies Corp. will be launching in January 2006 its PhotoViolationMeter ("PVM"). This new device is a self-enforcing parking meter that uses a combination of sensors, photography, and wireless technology to make it able to enforce itself.

Drivers have the options of paying by coin (multiple-currency accepted), phone, debit, credit card, or smart card, right at their vehicle. Features include a No-Fine option, Grace Periods and Instant Notifications.

The No-Fine feature gives drivers the option to simply swipe a credit card and the PVM incrementally adds time to the meter, billing the credit card as time passes, and stops billing the minute the vehicle pulls away. The Grace Period feature is available to drivers who are running late, allowing payment at the meter for expired time, rather than receiving a violation.

If drivers cannot return within the Grace Period, they have the option to pay for violations at the meter for a discounted fine. Additionally, the Instant Notification feature notifies the driver of, and prevents payment for, rush hour and no-parking conditions, preventing user vehicles from being towed.

The PMV also offers the option to add time remotely by mobile phone.

The PVM can enforce itself by issuing photo violations automatically. When a vehicle parks and moves away without payment, the camera takes a picture of the offending vehicle's license plate and sends it to the central processing center.

The company says this can cut down on violation disputes and court time by providing a picture of the offending license plate to prove the vehicle was in violation.

PVT is being supported by IBM in Canada, who will supply the PVM with a back-end server, hosting and maintenance services.
