Derby match parking enforcement07/08/17
FOOTBALL fans heading for the derby on Wednesday have been reminded that Dundee City Council parking attendants will be enforcing parking restrictions.
Staff will be patrolling the streets around Dens Park to help ensure no vehicles are blocking other traffic or creating a safety hazard.
Mark Flynn, depute convener of Dundee City Council’s city development committee said: “In preparation for the evening enforcement at the game, our team will be noting vehicle registration numbers in the area both in the morning when the cones are being put out and then again around 5pm.
“By doing this we hope to ensure that we give as many residents an exemption as possible.
“But there is no excuse for parking dangerously or inconsiderately and anyone who does so runs the risk of getting a Penalty Charge Notice of £60, with a 50% discount if it’s paid within 14 days.
“Parking restrictions are in place for the safety and protection of all road users including pedestrians and I would appeal to fans going to the match to be mindful of that when they choose where to park.
“Alternatively there are a number of bus routes that go up Dens Road and nearby streets.”
Evening enforcement was introduced at the end of last month in an effort to reduce the number of dangerously parked vehicles on city streets.
