Wheel clamping is designed to prevent vehicles from being mobile. A wheel clamp, also known as a wheel boot or shoe surrounds the wheel of the car to prevent the car from being driven.
A wheel-clamping device can be put on a vehicle if it is parked improperly on public parking land or if it is untaxed and on a public road.
The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) uses automatic number plate recognition cameras to spot untaxed vehicles on English roads. It can be very expensive to remove the device from your car, but if left unpaid, the DVLA has the authority to tow cars away.
Clamping, blocking or towing away a car parked on private land is illegal unless you have lawful authority. But you do not need to accept nuisance parking. Book a free, no-obligation consultation with us and we may be able to solve your car park problems in 2-8 weeks, legally and at no cost to you.
