Pay & Display Parking


  • No dates

A system of vehicle parking and stopping restrictions is in place throughout Ireland ensuring careless parking does not cause obstructions or impinge on safety. Most Local Authorities have Traffic Divisions or Roads Departments which are responsible for creating bye-laws that list places with parking restrictions (disc parking, permit parking, car parks and “pay and display”) and decide the value of parking fines.

La Touche Training has created a unique training programme to assist local authority staff with this process.

This two day training course will ensure officers know exactly what is required of them in relation to the drafting and enforcing of traffic bye-laws including learning how to draft, issue and serve a summons in line with local authority legislation.

Delegates will also learn the procedures for giving evidence. Whilst legislation is the same for every local authority, this legal training will create a uniform approach to parking enforcement throughout all local authorities.

Testimonial

"The training was excellent from start to finish. The trainer was very well prepared with all attendees getting a huge amount from this practical training course as well as comprehensive course materials. I would recommend La Touche Training to any Local Authority with similar needs.”
