Question

Although dispensation is provided for parking in restricted areas to glaziers for standard repair work and refurbishment as in MQT no. 1942/2006 on 13/09/2006, this does not cover emergency work. Will you investigate a system to cover emergencies?

TfL recognises that in certain circumstances it may be necessary to park on the red route in an emergency. Should a PCN be issued to a vehicle involved in emergency works, TfL recommends that the keeper makes a representation against the charge. TfL will consider all representations, but would need to see evidence that the work was considered an emergency and that the driver had taken every action to reduce the impact of their activity on the road.
