The Department of Infrastructure says it is now frequently confiscating vehicles which have unpaid fixed penalty fines.

Examples of vehicles taken included:

l One car left for a prolonged period parked in an area that had a ‘16hr in 24hr’ parking restriction. It had several parking tickets.

l One with 10 parking offences and no road tax.

l One with more than 100 outstanding tickets.

Owners can recover their vehicles once a release fee of £108 and storage charges of £12 per day have been paid and once the vehicle is properly taxed and insured and, where relevant, parking fines have been paid.
