With the introduction of the new license plate from January 01,2011. in Serbia, there was a problem with Latin labels for parking charging via SMS which JKP ‘Parking Service” met with readiness.
System for the collection and control of parking recognize newly introduced tags, so that owners of new license plates with Latin letters S, C, R, G and Dj can SMS without difficulty – in order to pay for the parking, with a return message from the operator and tags which correlates these signs. So instead of Đ will get you D instead of C – C, C – instead of a C, instead of S – S, instead of Z – Z.
