State legislation requires Council to be responsible for the enforcement of parking control within the city. This enforcement while raising revenue, is more important to ensure the safety of motorists, pedestrians and persons with disabilities. It is in the interest of residents, businesses and patrons that vehicles do not overstay in timed park areas while encouraging an acceptable turnover of vehicles where required.
Parking enforcement services are not popular but nevertheless is a necessary service to;
- Keep traffic flowing
- Ensure spaces are available and are properly managed
- Help make the city a safer place to drive, walk and cycle through
Many people park illegally because it is convenient without stopping to think they might be inconveniencing others or putting themselves in danger.
Disabled parking in car parks and streets are reserved for holders of disabled permits only. The permit must be displayed in the vehicle when parked in a disabled permit zone or if unable, a normal car park is to be used.
Applications for an Australian disabled Permit can be made at any Service SA Centre.
