Wheel clamping will be illegal in Jersey in future after a vote in the States chamber.
There has been uncertainty of whether it is legal or not but now politicians have agreed new regulations governing parking on private land.
They ruled that offending cars can be removed but not clamped.
Home Affairs Minister, Constable Len Norman said too many islanders had problems with other people parking on their land or blocking their drives, and things had to change.
The law change sets out a framework for removing vehicles parked on private land without permission:
- Make vehicle immobilisation and interference on private land an unlawful practice.
- Provide alternative mechanisms by which private landowners will be able to remove vehicles from their land when they are not authorised to be there.
- Provide safeguards in respect of the removal and disposal of vehicles, and the conditions that must be satisfied before doing so.
- Create a register of approved vehicle removal operators and an application process.
