The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) announced the introduction of a new app on smart phones to facilitate the job of parking inspectors, and ease the processing of parking permits in the Emirate of Dubai. The step is part of RTA’s efforts to equip inspectors of parking services with latest devices, and ensure the speedy processing of parking permits as well.
“Following the introduction of the smart parking app, which guides inspectors to vehicles in breach of the rule governing public parking in Dubai, a new feature had been added to the app. This feature is to enable the speedy processing of applications for issuing/renewing permits related to booking parking slots, occupying pavements, investing private land plots as parking areas as well as private parking permits for citizens,” said Maitha bin Adai, CEO of RTA Traffic & Roads Agency.
“The agency had provided hi-tech equipment for inspecting parking permits and processing parking applications, offering, for example, enhanced and more accurate images of applications for parking services and related offences. The GPS technology would also be used in pinpointing the locations of issued and new permits,” she continued.
“The new app would enhance the efficiency of parking inspectors, ease field jobs in terms of expediting the taking of right decisions in endorsing parking permits, or issuing offence tickets to incompliant retail outlets,” added Maitha.
