When do we use this?
The Do Not Ticket or Tow (DNTT) Report provides administrators with a listing of users who have DNTT permissions applied to their vehicle within a specified date range.
What is a DNTT?
The DNTT feature allows administrators to place a condition on a vehicle that will warn officers in the field not to ticket or tow a vehicle.
This is useful in many situations.
For example: A photographer on assignment is photographing different buildings on campus over a series of days. An admininstrator could register their vehicle and apply a DNTT for the days of their assignment on campus. No matter where they go on campus, they would be able to park without getting ticketed or towed.
Example 2: The Dean of the School is traveling around the campus for a special event. A DNTT can be applied to his vehicle so that for the time frame of the event he can park outside of his regular lot without penalty. This is what we affectionately refer to as the Anti Embarrassment feature of the tool.
Setting up a DNTT
To apply a DNTT:
- Go to the user's profile and select the Vehicles tab.
- Click on Add DNTT
- Set up for a temporary time frame by choosing a "From Date" and time and a "To Date" and time.
- In this case, the Vehicle with Plate number ABC321 has a DNTT in the Administration building area lasting from Midnight August 31st to 11:59 the same day.
Note: A location could be added to the system that reads Campus Wide, which would tell officers the vehicle can park anywhere on campus without penalty during the duration of the DNTT time frame.
This information can be viewed through the user's profile or through the DNTT Report.
Accessing the DNTT information from the user profile
- Go back to the user's vehicles tab.
- Click on Edit DNTT
- You will see a list of DNTT's assigned to the vehicle.
- You have the ability to Modify or Delete the DNTT order in this window.
Accessing the DNTT Report
