Appeals Service for Clamping & Tow-Away Operations

Dublin Street Parking Services operates a Tow-Away and Clamping Service as a traffic management measure to deter illegal parking. Vehicles causing a hazard or obstruction may be relocated & clamped. If your vehicle is towed or clamped and you are unhappy with the enforcement action taken, there is a two-stage appeals service available to motorists.

The first stage involves an appeal to Dublin Street Parking Service. To make a representation regarding the clamping or towing of your vehicle you can formally write to:

Dublin Street Parking Services
P.O. Box 9965
Dublin 2

Please enclose any documentation which you feel may substantiate your case. We aim to reach a decision within 21 days.

If you are not satisfied with the decision of Dublin Street Parking Services in relation to your representation, you can write to the following address for an appeals form:

Parking Enforcement Section
Roads and Traffic Department
Civic Offices, Wood Quay
Dublin 8

Alternatively the appeals form is available for downloading from Dublin City Council’s website

The completed appeals application form together with any supporting documentation should be returned to the Roads and Traffic Department.

Your appeal will be acknowledged and will be dealt with by an Appeals Officer independent of both Dublin City Council and Dublin Street Parking Services.

  • All of the parking regulations are designed to make life in Dublin City more pleasant, more orderly and more convenient for everyone.

They are intended to help the motorist by:

  1. eliminating obstructions and reducing congestion.
  2. improving road safety and
  3. increase the availability of on-street parking to more people.
  • Remember, it is the motorists’ responsibility to ensure that they are complying with the regulations when they park their vehicles on the street.
  • A vehicle must be removed when the maximum time allowed for parking (usually 3 hours) expires and it cannot be parked again on the same street within an hour of its removal.
