Parking Overstay Detection Systems (PODS) have been rolled out in Monash.
The system became operational in September 2015 in Glen Waverley, Mount Waverley and Clayton.
In Oakleigh, the system began operating on October 5.
Signs have been erected to remind motorists of the changes to the system.
PODS are inserted under the ground and transmit data to devices operated by parking inspectors, indicating when vehicles have been parked in an area for longer than signed.
It is important that car parks in busy shopping centres and near strip shops and businesses are vacated regularly to give everyone a chance of getting a car park and to ensure a steady stream of customers for local businesses.

Council currently has three DASH camera vehicles operating in Monash and plans to introduce more to its fleet.
The DASH camera vehicles have a camera mounted inside the vehicle which parking inspectors activate to take photos of vehicles parked illegally.
Council will be using the DASH camera vehicles predominantly around schools to ensure motorists are obeying parking signs and not putting vulnerable children at risk as they enter and leave school.
The DASH cameras will also target drivers parking in No Stopping zones or too close to intersections as these drivers create dangerous situations for other drivers by obstructing their line of sight.
