Here’s a Neat Solution for Disabled Space Cheats

As i was looking through Park News today an interesting article caught my eye. It was datelined Dubai:

A locally-made device will help Dubai Police crack down on illegal parking in the emirate.

The new device is fitted with a sensor, a video, a still camera, 3G internet and a warning device that will combine to issue fines to those who park illegally in disabled parking spaces.

The monitoring device, created by Dubai Police, will be installed at every disabled parking place in Dubai by the end of the year.

Each device will monitor one parking space. When a vehicle enters the space, the sensor detects it and starts beeping for 20 seconds. If the vehicle is still there after that time, the devices takes a picture and checks with the police database, via the 3G, if there is a valid parking permit for  disabled parking. If there is no permit, a fine is automatically issued.

Not too shabby. However I’m sure the development wasn’t cheap and putting one in each space could also be costly, but then, if you are mega rich and money means little, then it can work.
