Parking Violators Beware High Tech Chalk

February 27, 2007

Fredricksburg's city council will consider a proposal Tuesday night to purchase a new high tech way of catching parking violators.

The system dubbed "auto chalk" uses digital photos and GPS to monitor how long a vehicle is parked. Officers will be able to use before and after pictures to determine a violation.

The system uses information from the vehicle's license plate number, generates a ticket that is sent by mail to the owner. Fredricksburg City Manger Phil Rodenburg says the system costs $100,000 but that fewer employee would be needed for parking patrol.
