Guidance on civil enforcement of road traffic contraventions
Legislation (S87 of the Traffic Management Act 2004) provides that authorities must have regard to Statutory Guidance when exercising their functions. These functions include developing, implementing and reviewing their civil parking enforcement regimes.
The statutory and operational guidance documents set out the policy and regulatory framework for local authorities to help them set their road traffic contraventions strategies and, if appropriate, enforcing those policies.
Where the Statutory Guidance says that something must be done, this means that it is a requirement in either primary or secondary legislation, and a footnote gives the appropriate provision.
The Certification of Approved Devices document explains how applicants can apply for certification of devices such as closed circuit TV cameras and associated recording equipment. This document must be read in addition to applicable legislation about 'approved devices' made under the Transport Act 2000 or the Traffic Management Act 2004 as appropriate, which describe the requirements that must be met.
All guidance documents must be read alongside the legislation which can be found on the Legislation website (external link). The guidance documents do not have special authority in regard to matters of legal interpretation. Where there appear to be differences between the regulations and the guidance, the regulations always take precedence. This legislation includes:
- The Civil Enforcement of Road Traffic Contraventions (General Provisions) (Wales) Regulations 2013
- The Civil Enforcement of Road Traffic Contraventions (Representations and Appeals) (Wales) Regulations 2013
- The Civil Enforcement of Road Traffic Contraventions (Representations and Appleals) Removed Vehicles (Wales) Regulations 2013
- The Civil Enforcement of Road Traffic Contraventions (Approved Devices) (Wales) Order 2013
- The Civil Enforcement of Road Traffic Contraventions (Guidelines on Levels of Charges) (Wales) Order 2013
- The Civil Enforcement Officers (Wearing of Uniforms) (Wales) Regulation 2008
- The Removal and Disposal of Vehicles (Amendment) (Wales) Regulations 2008 as amended by the Removal and Disposal of Vehicales (Amendment) (Wales) Regulations 2014
