The City of Noblesville, Ind., is trading in its parking enforcement scooters and tire chalk. A new patrol car fitted with a license plate reader will enforce parking laws more efficiently.

Parts of downtown Noblesville allow free two-hour parking for the day — but this rule was tough to enforce when drivers moved their cars to adjacent spots every two hours, allowing the tire chalk to rub off, reported CBS4 Indy. The new system will scan license places as the patrol car drives down the street and flag vehicles that have been in the two-hour parking zone for more than two hours.
