Some local councils have taken on responsibility for parking fines. Traffic wardens have been replaced by civil parking enforcement teams (CEOs) on the beat for more hours than usual, from 7am-10pm seven days a week in Cardiff, Wales. The new teams will be mobile so any trouble spots can be prioritised. Cardiff council took over the enforcement from South Wales Police as part of a wider transport strategy. Police will continue to issue tickets to drivers who park on zigzag markings, cause obstructions and park dangerously.
Measures are enforced for the public highway, but what can private premises or businesses do to stop illegal parking on their property? Step forward Carpark Barriers & Turnstiles – we have mechanical and electronic barrier systems for the job, whether they may be parking posts, automatic bollards or static bollards. The posts may be stand alone or combined with a modular smart card system which controls all the doors, car park barriers and turnstiles at your site, so you can control visitor and employee access and their vehicles.
