Hopefully, you’re not a habitual Herndon parking ticket recipient, but anyone who does wind up with a ticket may notice a difference in the citations.
Herndon Police Department has implemented a new electronic parking ticket system. While there are still handwritten tickets, you may come across the new type that appear more like a store receipt, the department says.
“The addition of the electronic ticketing system is simple: This is a more productive and efficient system and process than that of handwritten tickets,” HPD spokesperson Lisa Herndon told FFXnow. “Not only does it save time, it allows for automatic import of all information gathered.”
There is not a plan to transition all officers to the system, as the department will only have so many units for use, Herndon said.
Herndon says the change is unrelated to a recent parking rules overhaul, which included adding $50 fines for motorists blocking curbs and restrictions on the length of time certain vehicles can be in residential areas. The town council passed the changes due to increasing complaints over parking issues.
The department encouraged anyone concerned about the legitimacy of the parking tickets they’ve received to call them at 703-435-6846.
