New Parking Ticket System
It is anticipated that on Wednesday March 14, 2012 the New Hope Borough Police Parking Department will begin using a new Parking Ticket System. It will have a new look. The new tickets will be white in color. They will be made of a tyvex paper and will be printed by a hand held device. The new hand held device is called hand gear and is manufactured by United Public Safety, a company based out of Horsham, Pa. The new look may confuse people receiving this style of ticket due to their new appearance and the Police Department wants to alert residents and visitors to the new system.

The advantages of the new system are that it will allow up to three pictures to be taken of the violation, the tag, and any other pertinent information. The data will be able to be brought back to the station and downloaded directly into the records management system.

Motorcycles
We strictly enforce a noise ordinance in the Borough. Spot checking is done by a uniformed officer using a calibrated decibel meter, the Extech 407768 Digital Sound Level Meter. It is accurate within 5%. The decibel meter is calibrated prior to and at the end of each shift.

Several motorcycles may park in the same parking space, providing they are parked  within the painted lines. If a meter expires, all motorcycles in the parking stall will be ticketed.
