Q: Why is the onus being put on me to ‘register’ my visitor rather than simply giving me a hang tag to give to my visitor?
A: Residents have been telling us for years that they want better, more consistent enforcement of residential parking zones and enforcement specific to the misuse of visitor hang tags. Photo enforcement is only possible if all of the permits are electronic.
Transitioning visitor permits online, along with all other RPP related permits, allows us to efficiently manage and provide enforcement support. In the paper system, there was also not an effective way to enforce the misuse of visitor permits. The ultimate goal for us is to help manage the usage of street space in each residential parking zone so residents and their guests have somewhere to park and the curbside isn’t filled with vehicles that aren’t permitted to be parked there.
