Officers from Ealing Council with support from Southall Broadway police have gone out on a high profile night-time joint operation to crackdown on illegally parked cars in Southall.
Last Friday (24 March 2023) saw 73 penalty charge notices (PCNs) being issued during the two hour operation for a range of offences including parking on dropped curbs.
Among the areas targeted between 9pm and 11pm in Southall were Uxbridge Road, High Street, Beaconsfield Road and Avenue Road.
It was the latest high profile operation to target illegally parked cars in Southall. In December 2022, the council issued 60 PCNs during a night-time crackdown.
Ealing Council Leader, Councillor Peter Mason said: “There is a vibrant night-time economy in Southall, and while we welcome people to our town, we expect residents and visitors alike to treat the area with respect. Increased traffic can sometimes bring an increase in illegal car parking and anti-social behaviour.
“The council and the police will continue to take action against perpetrators of these breaches of the law. Illegal parking and anti-social behaviour are not acceptable at any time in Southall or any of our other seven towns.
“For most, receiving an £65 fine is exactly the wake-up call they need to think twice when parking.”
