Peo­ple who abuse dis­abil­ity parks could be caught more easily with new tech­nol­ogy be­ing tri­alled in Welling­ton.

Welling­ton City Coun­cil is ex­tend­ing its trial of park­ing sen­sors in the cen­tral city to in­clude ID cards that are recog­nised by the sen­sors, in a move that could make it eas­ier to mon­i­tor mis­use of mo­bil­ity parks. The coun­cil has set aside $1.4 mil­lion to roll out 4000 sen­sors for city car parks, con­tin­gent on the out­come of a $100,000 trial run­ning since Fe­bru­ary.

That trial was due to end this month, but park­ing ser­vices man­ager Michelle Ri­wai said it was now likely to con­tinue un­til Septem­ber.
