High tech license recognition could be the way to go for Bathurst Base Hospital

High tech license recognition could be the way to go for Bathurst Base Hospital

Bathurst Base Hospital could see timed public parking limits if council decides to install number plate recognition technology.

Parking limits would also be heavily enforced on streets surrounding the facility, in a bid to target those who exceed parking limits in place.

Councillor Bobby Bourke says hospital management have discussed the possibility of contracting council to patrol the parking area, using the new technology.

There is currently a three hour parking limit on the grounds, however little has been done to enforce this.

Bathurst Regional Council General Manager, David Sherley, says money has been put aside in the budget to investigate the use high tech license plate recognition and if council does go down this path, a camera and computer will be fitted to a vehicle driven by a council member.
