We operate civil parking enforcement (CPE) as part of the Traffic Management Act (2004), which aims to keeping traffic moving. It includes higher penalty charges for more serious contraventions, such as parking on double yellow lines, and lower charges for others, such as displaying an expired pay and display ticket.
This means that most non-endorsable parking offences become “decriminalised.”
From 2013, we have operated CPE across the county, on behalf of North Yorkshire County Council, Craven District Council and Selby District Council.
North Yorkshire Police are responsible for dealing with all moving traffic offences and obstructions including pavement parking.
