Verra Mobility’s services will stem Denmark’s challenge with unpaid violations from foreign visitors
MESA, AZ. – Verra Mobility Corporation, (NASDAQ: VRRM), a global leader in smart transportation, has been chosen by the Danish Transport Authority to collect unpaid parking fees from foreign visitors to Denmark. Through its wholly owned subsidiary in the UK, Euro Parking Collections PLC, Verra Mobility started executing on the three-year agreement at the beginning of this year.
In recent years, The Danish Transport Authority has only been able to collect 17% of the parking expenses charged to foreign vehicles. With the majority of parking violations being issued to foreign trucks, and without a way to enforce or collect on unpaid parking fees, the problem finally has an end in sight in Denmark.
“Solving for complex problems across the mobility ecosystem is what we do,” said Tsjerk-Friso Roelfzema, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Verra Mobility Europe. We look forward to working with the Danish Transport Authority to increase parking fee revenue through our foreign violation collection services, which will certainly help to reduce unpaid foreign parking fees. With motorway congestion and costs on the rise within the overall mobility system, our years of experience across Europe uniquely position us to effectively and quickly support emerging transportation programs and policies like this one in Denmark.”
Verra Mobility’s violation management and foreign collection services in Europe include vehicle country identification, owner tracing, notification processing, outstanding debt collection, customer service and general program administration.
