Parking

Avon and Somerset Constabulary work in partnership with local authorities to deal with parking enforcement. With the exception of North Somerset Council, enforcement of parking infringements is no longer a criminal matter in all local authority areas.

When will the police attend?

Officers will only attend if:

  • A vehicle parked in a dangerous position
  • A skip causing an obstruction or is in a dangerous position
  • An obstruction of the pavement causing pedestrians to enter the highway

Important: If a parking offence is causing an immediate significant obstruction and/or is placing other road users in danger then call 999 for immediate police attendance.
