The minister responded – ” The number of PCNs issued in any one town or area depends on many factors, including the size of the town, the extent of parking restrictions and the volume of traffic.  These factors, plus the level of illegal parking, will influence where and how often Traffic Attendants are deployed.

Traffic Attendants will issue a PCN to any vehicle parked in contravention of a parking restriction however they must always afford drivers in or at their vehicle the opportunity to drive away before attempting enforcement. These factors, in combination with the varying levels of parking restrictions that require enforcing, are the primary reasons for the varying numbers of PCNs issued. ”
