A pet hate of motorists is to be fully regulated with all clampers forced to abide by a cap on fines and penalties.

 

Under new rules operators targeting private car parks and property will be forced for the first time

to follow the same restrictions and guidelines as companies policing public roads.

 

Among the fees for illegal parking will be a maximum 100 euro charge for releasing a clamp

and a 50 euro charge for releasing a car that has been towed away.

 

But there is also a provision for clampers to be fined if they are in breach of regulations.

 

Transport Minister Leo Varadkar said the new regime was designed to weed out bogus clampers.

 

"This new Bill protects motorists and legitimate clamping operators,

but will penalise bad behaviour by rogue operators.

There will also be a simple appeals mechanism for all types of clamping for the first time," he said.

 

"There have been a number of cases where private clampers are reported to have behaved unfairly

or inappropriately, so we are now regulating the entire clamping industry for the first time.

 

"I don't favour an outright ban on clamping on private property,

as business owners and apartment complex management companies need to be able to deal with nuisance parking.

However, the practice must be regulated."

 

Up until now the clamping of vehicles on private property has not been restricted by any laws.

The Vehicle Clamping Bill 2014 will create an appeals process and a regulator will be appointed

under the auspices of the National Transport Authority (NTA)

to bring overall consistency to parking enforcement.

 

Further rules to be determined by the NTA include the time period that must elapse

a vehicle can be clamped or towed away and the length of time a motorist

will have to wait to be released after a fine has been paid.

 

The new code of practice will require prominently positioned, clearly marked warning signs

- including the penalties and fees - on every site where clampers police parking.

 

Appeals will be dealt with on a two-tier system

 

- first

by going to the landowner, council or parking enforcement company to challenge a clamp,

 

and secondly,

if the complaint is not satisfactorily resolved, by going to an independent clamping appeals officer

designated by the NTA.

 

Further rules to be determined by the NTA include the time period that must elapse

before a vehicle can be clamped or towed away and the length of time a motorist

will have to be released after a fine has been paid.
