What PATROL does not Cover
This website is here to provide information about the enforcement of parking and bus lane regulations by councils in England (outside London) and Wales that are in the Civil Enforcement Scheme.
The following organisations may help you with areas we DO NOT cover: -
1) Parking or Moving Traffic Tickets issued by London Boroughs or Transport for London
Appeals against Parking or Moving Traffic tickets issued by London Councils or Transport for London are dealt with through the 'Parking and Traffic Appeals Service'
Parking and Traffic Appeals Service
PO Box 279
2) Tickets issued by Civil Enforcement Authorities in Scotland or Northern Ireland.
Scottish Parking Appeals Service
J Floor Argyle House
3 Lady Lawson Street
Tel. 0131 221 0409
Please note - Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth and Kinross, Dundee, Aberdeen and South Lanarkshire are currently the only councils in Scotland issuing Penalty Charge Notices under the Road Traffic Act 1991
Traffic Penalty Tribunal (Northern Ireland)
Tel. 02890 728 938
3) Fixed Penalty Notices, Standard Charge Notices or Excess Charge Notices issued by councils not in the Civil Enforcement Scheme or Police.
Some local authorities issue parking tickets in their car parks and in metered or pay and display bays on the street, although not under the legislation referred to above. These are commonly known as "Excess Charge Notices" or "Standard Charge Notices". They are processed by the local authority and enforcement takes place in the local Magistrates Court.
4) Penalties issued by organisations operating on private land.
From 1st October 2012 wheel clamping and vehicle removal on private land in England and Wales will be banned. Organisations that operate car parks on private land may issue parking penalty notices or tickets. To pay or challenge these, you will have to contact the organisation whose name and contact details appear on the parking penalty notice or ticket that has been issued.
The landholder can now pursue the registered keeper for payment of the parking charge if this person does not identify who was driving the car when the alleged parking contravention occurred.
Appeals against parking charge notices issued on private land are dealt with by POPLA (Parking on Private Land Appeals)
PATROL cannot assist with appeals against private companies. You may wish to contact:
