The Calgary Parking Authority plans to pilot a new, automated parking enforcement tool in the Ward 7 communities of Hillhurst Sunnyside and Briar Hill, in an effort to boost enforcement while improving convenience for residents.
The Autochalk system will use on-board cameras that register license plates automatically, replacing chalking tires and writing tickets by hand. Parking permits and visitor's permits will be unnecessary under the new system. Residents will be able to register their license plates so they don't get ticketed and register guests on-line. Mass-parking exemptions would also be available for house parties and special occasions.
