Georgia Southern University issues virtual permits
Georgia Southern University added AIMS LPR enforcement to their system last year and spent the next months identifying and adapting to changes in both the administrative and enforcement operations that the LPR system introduced. Having accomplished this while incorporating best practices, the next step was to stop issuing physical permits.
Permit registration beginning Fall 2017 was just that, registration. Students and Faculty/Staﬀ registered their vehicles via AIMS Web and selected from eligible parking options and method of payment, however permits were not issued. Exceptions to this were for parking requiring gate access, where permits with RFID chips continued to be issued. Plans are to add AIMS ﬁxed LPR for gate access to totally eliminate the need for permits.
This had the immediate eﬀect of ﬁnancial and environmental beneﬁts from not issuing physical permits. The drastic reduction of foot traﬃc in the parking oﬃce at the start of the year was also a welcome beneﬁt.
Improvements have also been realized in enforcement.
Georgia Southern will now start issuing both e-citations and printed tickets in tandem through the integrated AIMS Mobile application. They will then transition to issuing only e-citations. This will provide additional ﬁnancial and environmental beneﬁt, and violators are able to make payment directly from the electronic notiﬁcation of violation that they receive through AIMS.
