Motion text

That this House urges the Government to better regulate car clamping companies; deplores the extortionate level of charges levied which are often £125 or more for removing a clamp; further deplores the erroneous additional charges, including paying to return a car which has been impounded; is concerned that vulnerable individuals can be made to feel extremely intimidated by physically imposing clampers; recognises that it is legitimate to enforce parking restrictions but believes this process should not be disproportionate to the scale of the offence; and calls on the Department for Transport to introduce more rigorous rules which deter rogue clampers, strengthen codes of conduct for operators and give greater redress to people whose cars have been clamped.
