IPMI's Professional Development Newsletter: October 2021
Making Fun a Part of the Parking Equation
When people think of parking, “fun” doesn’t usually come to mind. But it could--and it should. As parking managers, it’s easy to be dazzled by numbers. How many parkers do you see in a day? How long do they stay? How frequently do they return? How much do they pay?

Transportation demand in Washington DC was on the rise. The District needed to catch up with new forms of mobility and increase accessibility while ensuring the safety of its ridership. The Department of Transportation tapped DC’s Parking Enforcement and Management Administration to develop a Bike Lane Enforcement program to allow officers to issue bike lane violations more safely and efficiently, while meeting the road safety goals of Vision Zero.
The ticket by mail program allows for more efficient enforcement, while protecting officers from potential confrontations.
