How types of parking fines are issued

A parking fine, also known as a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) can be issued to you by a civil enforcement officer (CEO).

They may give you a parking fine by either:

  • fixing it to your vehicle
  • handing it to the person driving the vehicle.

A parking PCN can also be sent to you by post if the penalty charge notice was issued by:

  • CCTV
  • a CEO who was unable to fix the PCN to the vehicle
  • a CEO who was unable to fix the penalty charge notice to the vehicle before it was driven away.
