Introduction

In car parking areas often with large numbers of vehicles in limited spaces the need for mutual consideration is of critical importance. Often in such situations enforcement of parking rules and regulations is a must for the good of all the stakeholders. Parking People enforce parking regulations as required.

In Ireland the methods available for enforcement of parking regulations would normally consist of:

  • Patrol
  • Issue of warnings
  • Issue of tickets (mostly traffic warden for local authorities)
  • Clamping
  • Vehicle Removal (mostly local authorities with little provision in law for owners of private land owners)

Parking People can supply and manage the full list of parking enforcement services on behalf of clients.

Ethical Enforcement Policy

Many companies involved in parking enforcement operate a patrol and clamp regime.  However, Parking People manage most enforcement by patrol and the issue of warning notices. Where ever possible a warning is first given prior to further enforcement taking place. As a last resort Parking People will clamp offending vehicles. If clamping is required it is done to a set protocol.

For Parking People the ultimate sanction of clamping must not be allowed to become the “raison d’être” for operating the business and could if unregulated be to the determent of other elements of the business. For maximum benefit for the client enforcement must be balanced.

Parking People are proud to operate an ethical enforcement policy. Twenty per cent of all revenue collected will go to a registered charity. We advertise this charitable contribution both on our warning notices and on all new signage that we now install on sites. This allows us to stand over all such activities with maximum integrity and we believe that such a sizeable charitable donation makes us unique in the parking industry.

Benefits of Ethical Parking Enforcement

  • Maintain maximum integrity for ourselves and for that of our client
  • Ensure a balanced approach to enforcement
  • Continue to maintain high levels of paid compliance
  • Maintain the highest possible levels of occupancy in the face of a enforcement regime that can potentially be detrimental to footfall in the business
  • Allows us to easily promote the car park ensuring a friendly customer focused method of operation

By operating this regime we continue to ensure that maximum revenue is generated through paid compliance from which the clients benefits from the maximum share.

Benefits of Ethical Parking Enforcement for the Public

By using a car park operated to this ethical enforcement regime the public will have an even greater sense of confidence in being treated fairly under an enforcement regime that involves clamping.
