Where to park
If you park on double yellow lines or somewhere where parking is not allowed, you could get a parking ticket and have to pay a penalty charge.
Why do we enforce the rules?
- to encourage sensible and safe parking in the city
- to reduce congestion on the roads and commuter journey times
- to make it safer for drivers and pedestrians in Bradford
- to improve the environment
- to make it easier for Bradford's residents to park in residential zones
