Technology breakthrough counters abuse of disabled parking

A New Zealand company has developed technology that will monitor and manage disabled parking, with the aim of putting to an end the misuse of disability parking permits.

Instead of carrying a printed permit, disabled drivers would have an electronic tag in their car that can be read by sensors placed in the parking bays. The sensors wirelessly relay information that identifies and verifies a genuine disabled driver and also alerts enforcement staff when a car has been illegally parked.

According to Stuff.co.nz, the new system is able to be implemented for around the same cost as existing permit-based systems, yet provides a more effective and efficient means of monitoring spaces.
