Illegal and dangerous parking behaviour, such as double parking and parking in red zones, poses road safety risks and creates traffic congestion.
Local government’s parking strategies and programs are an essential tool for safely managing congestion, reducing safety risks for road users and encouraging parking space turnover to support local traders, particularly in high-density commercial centres.
Congestion is not only due to an increasing number of vehicles on the road, but is greatly exacerbated by illegal parking behaviour such as double parking, and in zones designated as "No Stopping" or "Clearway", or Commercial "Loading Zones".
Councils also face pressure to maintain fair and equitable access to community amenities in a manner that is safe, fair and equitable for residents and visitors so as to not impact trade.
Through our partnership with leading parking technology company, Vehicle Monitoring Systems (VMS), Tenix Solutions offers a range of complementary technologies designed to encourage compliance with local laws, thus changing behaviour to reduce safety risks, congestion and encourage turnover of spaces to support traders.
Improving Safety around Schools
Safety at the school gate is one of the highest priorities of communities everywhere, with primary school aged children some of our most vulnerable road users. Illegal and unsafe parking practices in school areas are commonplace, particularly during the peak drop-off and pick-up times, contributing to the hazards around schools.
Enforcement plays a very legitimate role in changing driver behaviour to encourage safe driving practices in these areas, and Tenix Solutions has a number of product and service packages that have been specifically designed to support Councils and schools make their environments safer.
