New parking enforcement in Lincolnshire to start on December 3
Motorists are being encouraged to check for signs and lines when they are looking for somewhere to park, as the county council takes on new parking enforcement powers.
Around 20 enforcement officers will take to the county's streets from 3 December, taking a sensible approach to parking issues, looking to keep traffic moving, reducing congestion and inconsiderate parking, and also supporting local shops with parking bays outside.
This isn't something that has been regularly enforced by the police in recent years, and people need to know this will change.
In the two-week run up to parking enforcement starting, motorists who are breaching parking restrictions will be issued 'warning notices' as a reminder.
Don't risk getting a £70 or £50 fine, just make sure you look for any lines on the road or kerb, and signs in place, showing any parking restrictions.
This is not about making money. Based on information from the police, the estimated income from tickets issued is not expected to meet the costs of running the enforcement.
