Sticky situation: Tres Altman of Barnacle Parking
Barnacle Parking is here at Intertraffic to launch the Barnacle, a revolutionary device which enables a more efficient parking enforcement system across the whole lifecycle of enforcement activities.
As the name suggests, the bright yellow device sticks to the windshield using two suction cups with over 450 Kgs (1,000 lbs) of combined force providing a safer, faster and more efficient way for officials to immobilise vehicles. The device can simply be placed across the windshield, suctioned to the glass and then armed with a keypad.
Traditional wheel clamping requires the motorist to wait for someone to come and remove the device. However, the Barnacle comes equipped with a pay and remove system, allowing the motorist to call and pay over the phone with a credit card, which allows them to remove the Barnacle themselves, in minutes. The lightweight, user-friendly design of the device allows the violator to easily remove it and then return it to a convenient drop off location within 24 hours.
