Enforce parking laws

Employ traffic wardens who work outside of the normal 9 to 5, as most parking offences are committed outside of this time, and usually in residential areas. Alternatively, if there is no will to enforce the legislation, don't waste time and money brining in the legislation in the first place. 

Why the contribution is important

Likely to bring in significant revenue, ceratinly at first, as there are examples all over the Island of vehicles being parked outside of working hours on double yellow lines, close to junctions and in the case of large vehicles, where the current law says they shouldn't be parked overnight. May encourage business vehicles to return to depot at night rather than be taken home by employees and left on residential streets.

    This was put to the DOI some time ago. They could not see an issue!

    It would make the roads safer during the 'rush hours', around Douglas.
