Technology is only as smart as its creators, installers and users
It’s hard to imagine a place with more parking than the Las Vegas area. Every casino and venue offers parking for millions. I don’t know how there could be parking issues in that city, except maybe the finding of a large gypsy compound tucked into one of the back corners of the Bellagio garage.
But there are parking issues including this technology and equipment blunder. Read more.
In 2012, thousands of tickets issued in City Centre Place office building (not on the strip) were successfully contested. Enforcement officers there had to print a manifest detailing who had paid and who had not, but by the time they finished printing and wrote tickets, parkers had paid. Many tickets were cancelled.
City officials want to make parking easier and write fewer tickets so there are changes in the works including new meters and more payment options.
It doesn’t matter what kind of system you put in place – in any given endeavor – if you don’t walk through the process you’re going to have problems. My question is, how was this issue not foreseen?
