03 Jun Notice regarding Coventry City Council ANPR enforcement car
We’re pleased to let you know that Coventry City Council now has its own ANPR enforcement car to tackle unsafe and antisocial parking around schools, and improve road safety for the city’s children. It will be operational from next week (3 June 2019).
Coventry City Council has been operating an enforcement vehicle for several years through a third party, so for members of the public, parents, carers and school staff nothing will change.
There are well over 100 schools in Coventry, some with multiple access points, and parking is often a problem during pick up/drop off times. The car enables us to enforce the restrictions more efficiently than we can do on foot.
The car will be used to enforce the following restrictions where stopping is not permitted.
Yellow zig-zag lines outside schools
The red route
Loading / unloading areas
Penalty charge notices (PCNs) are not issued automatically – video footage will be captured by the car and reviewed by officers who will determine if an offence has been committed before issuing a PCN. A PCN incurs a fine of £70, reduced by 50% if paid in 14 days.
The ANPR vehicle is a distinct car that is clearly marked with Council livery and a camera on the rooftop, so any enforcement will not be hidden – but it will be a highly visible deterrent that will help to prevent dangerous and illegal parking around Coventry’s schools.
