How can you prevent fleet parking violations?

On Behalf of | Jul 11, 2023 | Commercial Fleet Trucking Parking Tickets |

When members of your fleet receive a parking violation, it could reflect poorly on your company. Excessive violations could jeopardize your company’s reputation and freedom.

A big part of preventing violations is spending adequate time training fleet members. Knowing how to manage fleet violations can help you stay in control of an issue that can be a nuisance.

Identify high-risk members

Some members of your fleet may be at a higher risk of accruing violations than others. For example, hiring a fleet driver with a history of traffic violations may not be your best choice. You will want drivers who have demonstrated the ability to comply with traffic laws and who show awareness of parking laws and ordinances.

Encourage compliant behavior

Another way to reduce the number of parking violations your fleet members receive is to encourage compliant behavior. Provide training about how to avoid violations and what to do if you receive one.

You can also provide incentives to encourage your drivers to stay mindful of their behavior. Compliant behavior will result in a reward whereas non-compliant behavior could result in a consequence. If members of your fleet do receive a parking violation, the New York City, Department of Finance suggests various programs you can use to manage fleet violations online.

A parking violation against one of your fleet drivers should be that person’s responsibility. A few violations every so often will not do any damage, but knowing how to mitigate these risks and how to enforce responsibility can help you keep your company in the clear.
