Parking tickets
6 Jan 2018

You last post is contradictory. In line 1 and 2 you state that ANPR can be used in LA's off street car parks for enforcement purposes providing it has been certified by the secretary of state (thus making it an approved device). But in lines 10 and 11 you say that LA's cannot use ANPR for enforcement purposes as only private parking companies can use them for enforcement purposes. For ...

So if a person does not accept what you say and politely challenges it they must be a wind up merchant? I've fully explained why I don't accept what you say and provided the relevant legislation to demonstrate that your view point is not supported by law. If it were supported you would be able to direct me to where the law prohibits LA's using certified approved ANPR devices to enforce ...

Thank you Diana Mond. As for ANPR I think Major P has got his wires crossed. The Deregulation Act 2015 amended the Traffic Management Act 2004 so that regulations could be made restricting the use of approved devices. However, the amendment only allows for regulations to be made that restrict the use of approved devices when enforcing parking contraventions occurring on a road . Take a ...

You still have not pointed out the law that prohibits LA's from using VCA approved/certified ANPR devices in their off street car parks to enforce civil parking contraventions under the Traffic Management Act 2004. I would not base your argument solely on a BPA extract. The BPA has been wrong before. So the legislation please?

Major P I did not demonstrate why ANPR cannot be used in LA owned car parks. I demonstrated that it can be used if VCA approved. It would not be much use for viewing contraventions associated with pay & display ticket details but it could be used for example to enforce code 81 "Parked in  a restricted area in a car park" and other codes such as 70, 74, 89, 91, 92, 80, 86, 90, 93, 95. What ...

That is a different matter from what I was debating. My response was to your general claim that ANPR cannot be used to enforce council owned off street car parks. I demonstrated that it is possible. Perhaps what you meant to say is that no council in Devon is in a position where they can enforce their off street car parks via ANPR due to their ANPR devices (if they have them) not being VCA ...

Major P you claimed that ANPR cannot be used to enforce council owned off street car parks. This is not true. ANPR can be used to enforce off street car parks via postal penalty charges if the ANPR device meets the prescribed technical requirements in accordance with this legislation and the VCA formally approve the device. http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2007/3486/schedule/made One ...
