Welcome to the PATROL website

This website provides information about the enforcement
of parking tickets as well as parking and bus lane regulations for councils in England (outside London) and Wales that are in the Civil Enforcement Scheme.

It also includes direct links to local information via council websites as well as other relevant links.

To see if your council operates civil enforcement you can
search using the 'participating councils' tab above.

Please note, we do not cover tickets issued by private companies or by the police. Please use the 'quick links'
to find out what else we do not cover and where you can go.

Throughout this site you may come across terms which you have not heard of. We do our best to explain these terms
but for a full and proper explanation please view our 'glossary
of terms' at any point of your journey through this site.
