What are Penalty Charge Notices?

Motorists are required by law, to follow any parking restrictions in place that are clearly shown by:

  • signs

  • lines on the streets

  • the notice boards in car parks.

Under the Traffic Management Act 2004 section 78, our Civil Enforcement Officers will issue a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN), generally known as a parking ticket or parking fine, to any vehicle that contravenes a parking restriction.

The liability (legal responsibility) for paying a PCN lies with the registered keeper of the vehicle.
