No fines issued to bikers parked on pavements over TT

DoI reveals fixed penalty notice information

No fixed penalty notices were issued to bikers who parked their bikes on the pavement over TT.

The Department of Infrastructure has confirmed its traffic wardens handed out no £60 fines to motorbikes between Friday, 27 May and Monday, 13 June.

Two fixed penalty notices were issued to other vehicle types for parking on the pavement in Douglas.

The information has been released as part of a Freedom of Information request by Manx Radio.

Hundreds of bikes were seen parked on pavements around the Island throughout the busy TT fortnight.

If a fixed penalty notice is not paid within 42 days it is passed to the Isle of Man Courts of Justice and becomes a fine.

If the notice is not paid within a further 42 days it is given warrant status and is collected by the coroners.

In March the Isle of Man Constabulary confirmed it's officers would be targeting people who parked on pavements.

It claimed it was one of the most common complaints received from members of the public.
