Clamping Banned

Clamping may have been banned but this makes no difference to the legal position. All a registered keeper has to do is name a driver, which could be himself of course. The new Law is then satisfied. The parking company will no doubt issue a charge to the named driver. However, the parking company still needs to show that it has an interest in the land and that it is Dunlop compliant, that is, that the charge it is making is not subject to a discount for early payment and that the charge is proportionate to the standard parking charge. If it fails any of these three tests, the ticket can safely be popped into the round filing cabinet known as the waste bin.
