Bendigo considering LPR monitoring technology


The City of Bendigo is considering following
Melbourne’s lead and introducing electronic parking monitoring technology.

According to the Bendigo Advertiser, the proposed system uses license plate recognition
technology to electronically ‘chalk’ vehicles, automatically detecting vehicles
that have overstayed the time restrictions in the area.

The technology is part of several recommended
amendments to the parking strategy for The City of Bendigo, including increased
parking fees, that are currently being considered by Council.

We actually posted about this technology back in 2009
when it was first being considered in Australia. For a walk down memory lane,
you can read more on our post ‘Drive-by chalkings’ here.
