Parking and photo enforcement represent more than 95% of the vehicle-issued violation volume impacting fleets, according to a new report from American Traffic Solutions. Typically, toll violations comprise the largest segment at approximately 56%, followed by parking tickets at about 22%, and finally, photo enforcement citations, for actions such as red-light running and speeding, at roughly 20%.
Violation-related issues are becoming a more visible discussion topic in the fleet world as violations are on the rise, driven by cashless electronic toll collection as well as advances in enforcement technology and practices.
This white paper, “Traffic Violations Are On The Rise: How Fleets Can Prepare,” seeks to provide fleet managers with an understanding of the trends in vehicle-issued traffic violations, as well as opportunities for saving money and reducing risk in dealing with these violations.
Some fleets treat vehicle-issued violations as a cost of doing business. For instance, many delivery and utility fleets in urban areas, such as New York City, place a higher value on providing timely service than negotiating complex parking rules. Other fleets seek to make drivers accountable for violation-related costs. What most fleet managers seem to agree on is that vehicle-issued violations present a costly, burdensome problem that could use better solutions.
