Data Source

These figures represent the number of tickets issued in a typical year. They are extracted from our Parking Tickets Database where we are collecting PCN and parking ticket information from local authorities across the country.

Note:
In order to try to reflect normal circumstances our Parking Ticket Hotspot Analysis uses tickets issued prior to the Covid period, but may include more recent data if we have found authorities issuing tickets in new locations. You can see which dates these figures relate to by clicking through to the individual local authorities.
Up to now TfL have refused to provide full data and so any tickets issued by TfL are not included.
