Hobart considering recognition technology

Hobart City Council is considering installing cameras that record cars going in and out of its car parks, in a bid to catch drivers exceeding parking time limits.

Hobart’s Lord Mayor Rob Valentine says “basically for reasons of wanting to be able to do surveys, finding out how people are using the car parks, trying to minimise them going in for the first 90 minutes free and turning around and coming back straight back in again and getting another 90 minutes free.”

Number plate recognition technology can cost around $100,000 and has not been used in Tasmanian car parks before. Lane Cove Council installed a number plate recognition system earlier this year which you can read more about here.
