Parking tariffs to be set by CO2 emissions

on .

Local authorities and car park operators can now set individual parking tariffs according to the CO2 emissions of vehicles, enabling them to offer lower parking fees or even free parking for drivers of ultra-low emission vehicles.
The new feature has been developed by parking technology business APT Skidata and uses automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras to identify and record each vehicle as it enters a car park, and compare the licence to a database that includes details around CO2 emissions.
