2. Bold Lane Car Park, Great Britain
A parking garage might seem like one of the easiest places on the planet to gain access to, but the Bold Lane car park in Derbyshire, England defies any pre-existing notions about the multi-storied buildings that you may have had. It’s operated by Parksafe Systems and is listed as one of the most secure places in the world by a BBC news report. Drivers are issued a barcoded ticket upon entering that is linked to a specific parking spot. They then have to enter a bay number which activates a motion sensor located in the ground. Drivers can only access the building using their barcoded ticket and the sensors are turned off once any charges are paid for. There are 190 cameras in the garage, emergency lock-down systems for all exits and a PA that allows the operator to communicate with anybody in the building.
