Report incorrectly parked vehicles

If a vehicle is parked incorrectly  

  • on yellow or red lines
  • at a bus stop
  • in parking bays
  • on footways or at dropped crossings - where there are adjacent kerbside restriction

then you can let us know using our online form.

Report incorrectly parked vehicles

A parking attendant can be sent to check and will issue a parking ticket if the vehicle is incorrectly parked. The vehicle may be impounded if it is causing an obstruction to other vehicles and pedestrians.

Parking attendants will not always be able to attend right away if they're busy elsewhere but will attend as soon as they are able. Please do not send us multiple requests about the same vehicle / location.

Unfortunately, we cannot assist if a vehicle is

  • parked across a dropped kerb or on a pavement - with no yellow or red lines present 
  • at a boxed junction
  • double parked
  • on zig zag markings
  • causing a hazard

Police Scotland may be able to help and can be contacted on their non-emergency number
