Bournemouth Council

Camera Car

Our camera car patrols Bournemouth and takes pictures of cars that are parked illegally

If your car is photographed, you could receive a Penalty Charge Notice in the post without a warning. We use the camera car to make sure no one parks where they're not meant to, for example at:

  • Bus stops
  • Pedestrian crossings
  • School entranceway zigzags

A Civil Enforcement Officer Supervisor will review the picture to decide if you have disobeyed the restrictions.

What happens when a car is parked illegally

We’ll contact the DVLA for the owners details. Then we’ll send them a Penalty Charge Notice. This includes the amount of the ticket and if a discount can be applied.

If you feel you’ve been charged unfairly, please read the Penalty Charge Notice for your appeal options.
