How do Smart Parking operate?

The company uses a combination of ANPR, and warden assisted areas. ANPR detect cars coming in and out of car park

Smart parking issue charges up to £100 and they claim their sensors detect over 100 million car movements every single day.

  • When a car enters or exits a car its number plate is registered by an ANPR camera. These take a photo of the number plate
  • If the car has stayed longer then the permitted time or over the time that has been paid for a ticket will then be issued. Tickets can also be issued if a registration number has not been entered at the premises (Pubs, hotels etc)
  • Tickets can also be issued if they are not on the parking companies white list as authorised to par
  • Once this data has been uploaded the Parking Company would then get the registered keepers’ details from the DVLA for £2.50.
  • To ensure keeper liability can be enforced a ticket is issued through the post within 14 days. The Parking Company will send a letter to the registered keeper at the time of the parking contravention.
  • This Notice to Keeper will ask for payment of the Parking ticket which is a lot of cases is up to £100. This will be discounted for early payment. If the Registered keeper gives details of the driver, the parking company will then send a ticket to the driver
  • Under The Protection of Freedoms Act (POFA 2012 Schedule 4) The Parking company has the right to pursue the keeper of the vehicle if no driver details are given. This can only happen if the ticket has been sent to the registered keeper within 14 days.
