Parking and transportation uses new RFID vans for enforcement

WKU’s Department of Parking and Transportation has a new parking enforcement device this semester. Their new radio-frequency identification, or RFID, system reads parking permits to make sure cars are parked in the correct lot, Jennifer Tougas, director of parking and transportation said. The tracking device is placed in a parking and transportation van, which is then driven through lots to check for violations. It allows parking enforcement officials to cover the needed ground, even with a reduced workforce. “It’s kind of been in beta-testing mode, but it’s a project we initiated last summer,” Tougas said. “So, we’ve been testing it throughout the fall and really started using it more extensively this spring.”
