CCTV vehicle enforcement

We use a camera car to address illegal parking outside schools and bus stops where motorists are putting the safety of others at risk and causing unnecessary congestion. This forms part of a wider programme of measures to improve road safety around schools, the reliability and punctuality of public transport, and reduce congestion.

Where does the CCTV vehicle operate?

We have identified problem areas including:

  • Roads with yellow zigzag markings (school keep clear markings)
  • Bus stops

How does the CCTV camera enforcement work?

The CCTV enforcement vehicle is driven by trained operatives who are experienced Civil Enforcement Officers. The vehicle is clearly marked with CCTV enforcement and council logos.

Automatic Number Plate Recognition cameras will record any vehicles parked illegally. This footage is reviewed and an independent officer will determine if a parking contravention has occurred.

If a parking contravention has occurred, a penalty charge notice is sent to the address of the registered keeper of the vehicle. This will be sent by post, within 28 days of the date of the alleged parking contravention.
