For your Information

With an ever-increasing number of cars on Britain's roads, managing traffic and car-park spaces is about safety and ensuring fair treatment for pedestrians and drivers of all vehicles.


One of the British Parking Association's main aims is to raise standards across the parking industry. This commitment means helping to increase public awareness and understanding of the rules and regulations about parking, be it on a street or in a multi-storey car park.


The guide, produced in association with Consumer Group Which, will take you through everything you need to know about parking and where the right place is to safely and legally park your car.
