Traffic Fines

Waterford City and County Council operates Pay and Display Parking in Waterford City, Dungarvan, and Tramore (June-September inc.).

Enforcement of Pay and Display Parking

Waterford City and County Council employ Traffic Wardens to carry out parking enforcement of our Pay & Display parking locations, along with the enforcement of parking regulations and prohibitions, e.g. illegal parking on double yellow lines, in disabled parking bays, in school keep clears, on footpaths etc. within the Council’s administrative area. Members of An Garda Síochána also have this authority.

A Fixed Charge Offence Notice (i.e. a parking ticket), is a fine levied throughout Ireland when a traffic warden determines careless or illegal parking (or other offences) has taken place and may be causing obstructions for motorists, road users, pedestrians and businesses.

Note: Many car parks in Waterford City and County are privately owned, and as such, Waterford City and County Council has no say in fees charged, opening hours etc.

Fixed Charge Offence Notice

If you received a Fixed Charge Offence Notice (i.e. a parking ticket) which you feel you did not deserve, you can appeal the ticket in writing by completing the parking offence appeal form below.

From a Health & Safety perspective, to reduce the risk of violence/aggression towards Traffic Wardens, our wardens wear a Body Worn camera as part of their uniform. The policy covering operation of these cameras can be found below.
