Report illegally parked vehicles

If a vehicle is parked on yellow lines, at a bus stop or parking bays when they should not be then you can let us know.

Report illegally parked vehicles

A parking attendant can be sent to check and will issue a parking ticket if the vehicle is wrongly parked. 

Any vehicle parked in contravention of legislation may be impounded. 

Parking attendants will not always be able to attend right away if busy elsewhere.

If a vehicle is

  • parked across a dropped kerb
  • on a pavement
  • at a boxed junction
  • double parked
  • causing a hazard

and there are no parking bays or yellow lines then Police Scotland may be able to help. Police Scotland can be contacted on their non-emergency number
