Technology has transformed the parking industry in recent years, and now some of the same technologies that make parking more user-friendly and manageable are being used to make our highways safer. Anyone who has spent considerable time driving America’s highways knows how dangerous fatigued driving can be. Approximately one in every five fatal motor vehicle crashes involves driver fatigue, and a third of crashes involving a drowsy driver also result in injuries. Tired drivers are responsible for over 70,000 crashes a year, causing nearly 45,000 injuries.

A common problem facing urban shopping centers is people often misuse their parking lots. Free parking at retail centers can present an irresistible temptation to people who live and work in surrounding businesses and neighborhoods where parking lots and garages charge an hourly rate.

The 40-acre development features 635,000 square feet of outlet shops and restaurants, 2.8 million square feet of office space, a 159-room hotel, and 1,800 residences — and thousands of parking spaces.

The Florida Department of Transportation is working to install sensors across the state's 68 rest areas to take the guesswork out of parking for tired truckers.
Truckers in Florida will no longer have to wonder whether a rest area has available parking spots before exiting the highway. Sensors are to be installed in parking spaces to alert them to empty spots in all of the state's 68 rest areas and truck stops, via a mobile app and signage along the highway. The upgrades, being done by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), are intended to improve safety by making it easier for truckers to leave the highway when they get tired or approach the end of state-mandated travel times. "Our best estimate is that 1,859 spaces across the state will be monitored with these spaces," said Gorm Tuxen, president of IPsens,...
