Parking control for a safer community. Illegally parked vehicles block pavements and choke streets. They are not just a minor annoyance, they can make your neighbourhood dangerous.
Illegal parking used to be dealt with by the police, but this responsibility has now passed to local councils.
Police time will be freed up to tackle serious crime while councils will now be able to integrate parking management with transport planning and highway investment.
In Staffordshire this 'Civil Parking Enforcement' initiative is called 'Clear Streets' - because that's what it sets out to achieve.
The enforcement of parking restrictions will be carried out by your local District or Borough Council.
Their well-trained and uniformed Civil Enforcement Officers will issue Penalty Charge Notices
to drivers selfishly flaunting yellow line regulations. And if they spot other illegal obstructions they will report them directly to the police.

It's easy to avoid getting a Penalty Charge Notice: always park legally and safely. Make sure that you are clear on your responsibilities as a driver by brushing up on the Highway Code and take particular note of the section called Waiting and Parking. Follow the code and you won't fall foul of the law.
Clearing your streets of rogue parkers will bring benefits for everyone. And as a bonus while the attendants are out and about they will be keeping a watchful eye, helping to make your neighbourhood a safer place.
