Strategies to Manage Fleet Violations

Posted on December 30, 2013

TORRANCE, Calif. — Parking tickets, toll violations, and red-light camera infractions are often seen as the cost of doing business. And, these costs are on the rise. According to data from American Traffic Solutions (ATS), between 2007 and 2012 there was a roughly 50-percent increase in fleet violation volumes. In fact, according to ATS, tolls, parking, and photo enforcement account for more than 95 percent of the vehicle-issued violation volume impacting fleets.

For fleets, the majority (56 percent) of these infractions come in the form of tolls, 22 percent in parking violations, 12 percent from red-light cameras, and 8 percent from speeding cameras.

The potential bottom-line costs are staggering. In 2011 alone, for instance, Washington, D.C., collected $92.6 million in parking fines; an increase of $12 million from 2010, according to a report in the Washington Post. The increase in costs is related to an increase in fine amounts.
