How it Works

The City of Deerfield Beach has implemented a Pay-by-Plate Parking System.  This system uses license plate recognition technology and is expected to reduce operating costs over time.  Patrons will pay at designated meter stations located in each of the parking zones and enter their vehicle’s license plate. The City of Deerfield Beach Parking Enforcement is equipped with technology that scans license plates in order to monitor pay parking locations.
