Massapequa Park trustees Monday approved a plan to embed in 50 parking spots electronic sensors that notify code enforcement officers of illegally parked cars.
When a vehicle stops over a sensor, the wireless disc transmits a signal to officers' cellphones. With real-time notification, the officer can then go to the site to issue a warning or a $25 ticket. The village, without any meters, now relies on four patrolling officers, typically two per shift, to monitor parking problems.
Do you think electronic parking sensors are a good way to nab illegally parked cars?
