An overtime rule is a type of entity that defines a parking time limit and the maximum number of violations enforceable within a single day. Overtime rules are used in city and university parking enforcement. For university parking, an overtime rule also defines the parking area where these restrictions apply.
The overtime rule is downloaded to Genetec Patroller™. In Genetec Patroller™, an overtime hit occurs when the time between two plate reads of the same plate is beyond the time limit specified in the overtime rule. For example, your overtime rule specifies a four hour parking limit within a city district. The Genetec Patroller™ operator does a first pass through the district at 9:00 A.M. collecting license plate reads. The operator then does a second pass through the district at 1:05 P.M. If a plate was read during the first and second pass, Genetec Patroller™ generates an overtime hit.
An overtime rule is a type of hit rule. A hit rule is a method used by AutoVu™ to identify vehicles of interest. Other types of hit rules include hotlist, permit, and permit restriction. When a plate read matches a hit rule, it is called a hit. When a pair of plate reads (same plate read at two different times) violates an overtime rule, it is called an overtime hit.
In City enforcement the wheel imaging option can be used to provide additional evidence of the violation by showing whether or not the vehicle has moved even a small distance.
Same position overtime rules
Same position overtime rules specify how long a vehicle is allowed to park in a single parking space on a particular street.
District overtime rules
District parking enforcement is a type of overtime rule that specifies when a vehicle is allowed to park within a specific geographic location (for example, a city district).
The borders of a “district” are not defined in Security Center Config Tool (for example, by drawing a polygon on a map), and there is no correlation with a city’s formal boroughs or municipalities. A district exists where the Genetec Patroller™ user chooses to enforce it.
Block face overtime rules
Block face parking enforcement is a type of overtime rule that specifies when a vehicle is allowed to park on both sides of a street, between intersecting cross-streets.
The borders of a “block face” are not defined in Config Tool (for example, by drawing a polygon on a map). They are defined on the spot for each individual plate read. For example, when a Genetec Patroller™ user selects a block face overtime rule, and then reads a license plate, Genetec Patroller™ uses GPS to determine the block face for that particular plate read based on the intersecting cross-streets closest to the parked vehicle’s position.
