Our Services

We are a multi-faceted parking, parking enforcement, traffic enforcement, paid toll road consultants and third party managers for governments and local municipalities. We specialize in managing and revenue collection whereby we will take over, streamline and increase your governments revenue.

On-street parking systems

We are in the business of overseeing the establishment of on-street parking systems in areas of the world where previously there was no controlled parking enforcement or it was not efficiently run. At other times, there was no legal means of implementing controlled parking systems or the inimgrastructure.

Our company works closely with government officials to ensure that the proper legislation is in place to effectively implement an enforcement and revenue collection system that will be of the most benefit to the government entity and its citizens.

Handheld Parking Enforcement Devices

Along with on-street parking systems we will also implement parking enforcement with handheld parking devices which can issue, monitor, report, and enforce parking violations. Handheld ticket writers are lightweight, single-piece devices with attached printers to enable parking enforcement officers to “write” their tickets on the handheld computer and have the tickets printed at the scene. The printed tickets are legible, durable, weather-proof, and most importantly – accurate.

This device can link into a central database of all registered automobiles and instantly upon submission attach to the offending vehicles registered owner. This will eliminate the antiquated process of delivering tickets to a station to be registered into the system for offending vehicles. Once a ticket is submitted through the handheld device it will automatically attach to the offender’s vehicle.

We will hire, train and oversee your parking enforcement staff to enforce parking 7 days a week and 365 days a year.

Photo Enforcement

There is the red light camera to ticket those that go through a red light, and there is a photo-radar that will ticket those that exceed the posted speed limit signs. Through our resources and experience, we will oversee the installation and enforcement of such systems.

A red light camera system is connected to the traffic signal and to sensors buried in the pavement at the crosswalk or stop line. Traffic engineers determine the criteria that will trigger the camera to photograph a vehicle.Red light cameras usually only photograph the license tag of the vehicle, but they also can photograph the driver. Typically, two photographs are taken, one when the vehicle crosses the stop line and a second when the vehicle is in the intersection. The photographs also include the date, time and place, vehicle speed, and elapsed time imgrom the light turning red to the time the photograph was taken.

Speed enforcement systems, also known as photo-radar, are triggered when a vehicle exceeding the speed limit by a predetermined amount is observed. Like red light cameras, speed cameras generate photographic evidence that gives the date, time and place, and vehicle speed.

The verification process works whereby the pictures taken by road-rule enforcement cameras must usually be viewed by a person before any inimgringement notice or ticket is issued to the driver, and judged to be satisfactory or not. This step is known as verification, and is a standard legal requirement in nearly all jurisdictions. Verifiers typically must check some or all of the following:

Most electronic imglash cameras produce clear images of vehicles under all light and weather conditions. Photographs are carefully reviewed by trained police officers or other officials to verify vehicle information and ensure the vehicle was in violation. Tickets are mailed to vehicle owners only in cases where it is clear the vehicle ran the red light. Our trained staff will then engage in the collection of fines.

Letter Of Intent For 7 Transportation Licenses

This is a proposal for 7 separate licenses to be obtained throughout the 27 Oblasts of Ukraine. This deal is being facilitated, brokered and managed through Municipal Asset Privatization Consultants, LLC a Chicago based transportation consulting group established for the sole purpose of managing parking enforcement, toll roads and moving violations. We propose to, invest, implement, and improve on all automobile infrastructure throughout Ukraine with the below licenses coming at no cost to the government or taxpayer, rather funded through private investment from international consortiums by our firm or a sub-contracting license we will obtain. Our proposal will modernize all road, parking, and automobile infrastructure while at the same time generate a sustainable revenue stream to local city governments and the country as a whole to re-invest in sectors they choose. The generated revenue can be re-invested into schools and education, healthcare, constructions projects, or any area to be chosen by the national or local city governments. We will enter into a revenue-sharing agreement with our firms and the city to create a deal that will be profitable and appealing to all parties.

We are seeking licenses or outsource contracts from your government:

License 1: Parking Meters

The country of Ukraine has approximately 8,000,000 automobiles currently registered in the country. Currently there are no standardized parking meters or proper parking enforcement. Cars park everywhere they should not including sidewalks. The amount of lost revenue without parking meters and proper enforcement is exorbitant. A recent trend throughout developed countries has been the privatization of the parking meter systems within larger cities. In the United States alone there are now numerous large cities that have begun to implement the privatization of parking meters. Chicago parking meters were recently privatized to a similar company such as ours. To illustrate the amount of revenue able to be generated through a standardized system of parking meters, in 2011 Chicago Parking Meters, LLC collected more than $80 million (USD) in revenue.

Indianapolis, Indiana has also recently signed a deal that resolves some of the issues in the Chicago parking meter deal. Indianapolis has realized that the key is to not have an exclusive lease deal whereby the private company collects all revenue from the meters. Rather they have signed a revenue-sharing agreement which not only allows them to receive the substantial revenue of parking meters, but also requires the private company to install, implement, and collect all revenue thereby eliminating the infrastructure and personnel costs of maintaining said system while still reaping the benefit of parking meter revenue throughout the term of the 50 year lease. The city received considerable revenue with much of the investment coming from the private sector with the city sharing in revenue throughout the 50 year lease term.

There are now other cities throughout the developed world that are now moving to privatization of parking meters. In the United States many cities have begun inquiries into privatizations cities such as Cincinnati, Ohio, New York, New York, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and others have seen the short term and long term revenue increases due to privatization. These are cities with revenue already being generated through parking meters, parking enforcement, toll roads, and photo enforcement. Ukraine who has yet to standardize a system for municipal control of the above standardized policies and Ukraine has lost out on millions in revenue. The licenses that will be granted to us will allow us to produce the revenue the government expects together with order in how cars park and where.

Currently in Ukraine there is significant revenue lost through the lack of implementation enforcement, and standardized use of parking meters throughout the 45 largest cities (defined as a city with a population greater than 100,000). Modeled after other large cities throughout the United States and Europe the granting of this license to Municipal Asset Privatization will open up a new avenue of revenue for municipalities throughout the Ukraine. The shared revenue that we propose can be paid to the Central Government of Ukraine or to each Oblas

License 2: Handheld parking enforcement devices

Handheld ticket writers are lightweight, single-piece devices with attached printers to enable parking enforcement officers to “write” their tickets on the handheld computer and have the tickets printed at the scene. The printed tickets are legible, durable, weather-proof, and most importantly – accurate. We are currently vetting through consortium’s to procure requests for proposal whereby we will put forward a proposal including: implementation, revenue-sharing projections, logistics, infrastructure, and incremental revenue forecasts. This proposal will also include similar to our other deals a revenue sharing agreement whereby we will absorb the cost of overhead and implementation, therefore costing the government nothing to implement, with the government receiving the projected revenue from the installation of meters. It will then contain another licensing agreement that will include the enforcement of parking violations (i.e. tickets issued by police for expired meters) through a handheld device whereby it will register the ticket on the offending license plate’s registered owner. This will be recorded on their automobile registration. During the owners yearly inspection in order to receive their annual registration they must have zero violations on record, or they will be forced to pay all outstanding unpaid parking tickets in order to properly register their automobile and pass the yearly inspection.

This device can link into a central database of all registered automobiles and instantly upon submission attach to the offending vehicles registered owner. This will eliminate the antiquated process of delivering tickets to a station to be registered into the system for offending vehicles. Once a ticket is submitted through the handheld device it will automatically attach, and the registered owner must pay the ticket, or face the consequences of losing registration of automobile. If the ticket is not paid within a certain time period the ticket will automatically double, and an automobile will not be legally registered until all the outstanding tickets are satisfied. This will then lead to a system where if an offender accrues 3 tickets or greater without paying the fine, they will receive a booting system which will disable vehicle until such time that the tickets are satisfied. This is the current system in place in most of the developed world.

License 3: Privatization of Toll Roads, whereby we are requesting a license

Privatization of toll roads is growing trend throughout the developed world. Much of the states within the United States have some privatized road project formally proposed or underway. In the last two years Indiana and Chicago signed multi-billion dollar private concession deals for public and private roads for 75 years and 99 years respectively. As a result of this license, toll rates on these roads will increase steadily and revenues will be used to improve roads.

Encouraged by the enormous anticipated profits that private road operators will reap from these deals, Wall Street investors and high-priced consulting firms have promoted similar deals to other states and local governments. Ukraine will be the next country where we can begin to vet similar deals. The deal proposed will be for us to receive the exclusive license to install paid toll roads throughout Ukraine to construct new roads and improve on the existing roads that will be subject to this deal. The private sector can more efficiently produce revenue and efficiently run these projects. Governments have a long history of outsourcing service delivery on public thoroughfares to companies such as ours

In general, privatization makes sense where the private sector has a clear comparative advantage over the public provision of those same services with toll roads exemplifying this theory especially in a country such as Ukraine. Private proposals should thus be judged according to the relative costs and benefits of enlisting this intermediary to borrow and to hike tolls.

This brings us to the licensing deal currently proposed with Municipal Asset Privatization Consultants, LLC. This deal license will advance the interests of Ukraine whereby it will help develop roads at a much quicker pace, and will help create a transportation infrastructure similar to most developed countries. It will help provide sustainable revenue that can be reinvested into the improvement of dilapidated roads throughout the Ukraine and fund further development of a network of modernized highways connecting all major cities throughout Ukraine.

License 4: Photo Enforcement of Moving Violations

There are two components to this license. There is the red light camera to ticket those that go through a red light, and there is a photo-radar that will ticket those that exceed the posted speed limit. A red light camera system is connected to the traffic signal and to sensors buried in the pavement at the crosswalk or stop line. Traffic engineers determine the criteria that will trigger the camera to photograph a vehicle. Red light cameras usually only photograph the license tag of the vehicle, but they also can photograph the driver. Typically, two photographs are taken, one when the vehicle crosses the stop line and a second when the vehicle is in the intersection. The photographs also include the date, time and place, vehicle speed, and elapsed time from the light turning red to the time the photograph was taken. Speed enforcement systems, also known as photo-radar, are triggered when a vehicle exceeding the speed limit by a predetermined amount is observed. Like red light cameras, speed cameras generate photographic evidence that gives the date, time and place, and vehicle speed.

The verification process works whereby the pictures taken by road-rule enforcement cameras must usually be viewed by a person before any infringement notice or ticket is issued to the driver, and judged to be satisfactory or not. This step is known as verification, and is a standard legal requirement in nearly all jurisdictions. Verifiers typically must check some or all of the following:

Most electronic flash cameras produce clear images of vehicles under all light and weather conditions. Photographs are carefully reviewed by trained police officers or other officials to verify vehicle information and ensure the vehicle was in violation. Tickets are mailed to vehicle owners only in cases where it is clear the vehicle ran the red light. In the United States typically this process takes one to three weeks and fines range from $50 (USD) in some states up to $400 (USD).

License 5: Vehicle Emission Testing

Vehicle emissions are an integral part to many developed countries ability to control the amount of air pollution created by automobiles. An emission performance standard is a limit that sets thresholds above which a different type of emission control technology might be needed. While emission performance standards have been used to dictate limits for conventional pollutants such as oxides of nitrogen and oxides of sulfur (NOx and SOx), this regulatory technique may be used to regulate greenhouse gasses, particularly carbon dioxide (CO 2 ). In European countries it is given in kilograms of carbon dioxide per megawatt-hour CO2 /MWhr. This program will be self-funded by the fees collected for vehicle emission testing and fines assessed on offending vehicles with additional revenue going to the city.

The United States and European Union have seen their air pollution reduced considerably through legislation regulating the emissions of automobiles, the emissions of automobiles has led very poor air quality and in some cities has created a layer of smog in the atmosphere, and through legislation and enforcement of emission standards, you will create another stream of revenue, improve air quality, and remove hazardous automobiles from the roads. In the United States vehicle emission standards were legislated through through amendments to the Clean Air Act of 1990, a good model to be followed by countries looking to implement such legislation and standards. The standards proposed specifically restrict emissions of carbon monoxide (CO), oxides of nitrogen (NO x ), particulate matter (PM), formaldehyde (HCHO), and non-methane organic gases (NMOG) or non-methane hydrocarbons (NMHC). The limits are defined in grams per mile (g/mi). By regulating the amount of emissions including carbon dioxide, you will not only create a revenue stream by ticketing offending vehicles, but will also improve the air quality many times over of every major city and the country. We propose that we implement and create the testing facilities that will be used to enforce the emission standards. Every year a vehicle must come in and pass the emissions testing, if they do not they will be given 30 days to have the vehicle fixed, and return to testing facility if not fixed they will be assessed a fine and vehicle will not allowed to be driven, as it will not have the proper registration. If vehicle is found to be driven by any police officer offender will be assessed additional fine. All fines from violators will be part of revenue stream as part of revenue sharing agreement that can be used by city/national government as they see fit.

License 6: City Stickers and Permits

In most metropolitan cities they require that each vehicle of a resident residing within their city to purchase an annual city sticker to be affixed to the windshield of their vehicle. They vary in price in each city but range from $50 (USD) - $200 (USD) annually. Every city retains the revenue generated from the city stickers purchased. If a vehicle is stopped by a police officer and the identification indicates that the driver and car is from the specific city but does not have a city sticker, the violator will then be issued a fine of $100 (USD) or amount determined by the city.

We propose to implement both the infrastructure and procedures involved for proper enforcement of the city sticker program. With procedures for enforcement being the critical part, this city sticker program can also be used to replace the annual registration process and narrow down to the city level enforcement and revenue generation which can then be reinvested back into city infrastructure.

For Example a city such as Chicago in the United States uses the following policy: Revenue from the City Vehicle Sticker helps fund the repair, maintenance and improvement of the more than 4,000 miles of Chicago’s streets and roadways. City Vehicle Stickers are issued annually and are valid as soon as they are applied to the windshield. In other words, as soon as you get your new City Vehicle Sticker, remove your old sticker and replace it with the new one. City Vehicle Stickers expire on June 30th of each year. A Chicago resident with a vehicle that is used for more than 30 days in the City of Chicago must purchase and display a City Vehicle Sticker.

Along the same lines many cities have certain streets that will require a permit to park on the street. These permits are eligible for any vehicle residing in a designated block of city. For example a specific neighborhood within the city will require a permit from neighborhood residents to allow guests to park on the street in front their residence. They will be issued 30 “guest passes” per month at a cost of $30 (USD), and will be issued in conjunction with the city sticker, and each month each registered resident must purchase a new book of passes per month.

As with most cities there can be exceptions to the requirement of city stickers and permits, due to handicap, current military service, police officers, and government officials. Each of them will be issued a placard indicating they are exempt from the requirement of city stickers or parking permits. With strict enforcement this will generate considerable revenue for each city and keep a registered log of all vehicles currently registered in each city, for tracking and statistical purposes.

License 7: License Plates Stickers/Renewal/Administration

This category of license deals specifically with the administration and annual license plate registration within a specific Oblast. In most countries this level of registration is just below national government and focused per province/state/oblast. The revenue generated from this license is distributed to the oblast for reinvestment into the infrastructure and other social services programs.

License plate stickers can be registered to either the vehicle or the owner; in the United States for example it is registered to the owner, whereas in Poland it is registered to the vehicle. We propose a system similar to Poland that will allow multiple drivers per vehicle to operate the vehicle legally.

Each year a new sticker must be obtained to keep vehicle current and legal within their oblast or region. The fees range from $100 (USD) to $150 (USD) to obtain a new sticker each year. Without proper license plate sticker, it allows a police officer to pull over any offending vehicle and issue a fine for not having properly registered vehicle. It also allows parking enforcement personnel to issue a ticket to any vehicle parked in the street without a up-to-date license plate sticker. Once a ticket is issued it will go directly to a central database for administration. If a vehicle accumulates more than 3 tickets they will be liable to have their vehicle towed to a city towing yard, or to put on a disabling boot onto vehicle. The only way to receive vehicle out of tow yard or remove the disabling boot, will to pay all applicable fines, with a late fee for failure to pay tickets timely.
