EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations prescribe functions during the exercise of which a parking attendant must wear such uniform as the Scottish Ministers may determine (regulation 2).

The requirement to wear a uniform is contained in section 63A(4) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984. Section 63A itself applies to Greater London only but by virtue of the Road Traffic (Permitted Parking Area and Special Parking Area) (Stirling Council) Designation Order 2017 that section is modified so as to apply to the parking area designated by that Order. Accordingly, parking attendants exercising the prescribed functions within that parking area are required to wear a uniform when doing so.

(1)

1984 (c.27). Section 63A was inserted by the Road Traffic Act 1991 (c.40), section 44; section 142(1) contains a definition of ‘prescribed’ relevant to the making of these Regulations. Sections 63A and 142(1) are modified in relation to the Stirling Council parking area by the Road Traffic (Permitted Parking Area and Special Parking Area) (Stirling Council) Designation Order 2017, S.S.I. 2017/82. The functions of the Secretary of State, so far as they are exercisable within devolved competence, were transferred to the Scottish Ministers by section 53 of the Scotland Act 1998 (c.46).

(2)

Section 134(8) was inserted by the Scotland Act 2016 (c.11), schedule 2, paragraph 12(5).

(5)

Sections 66 and 69 of the 1991 Act are modified in relation to the Stirling Council parking area by the Road Traffic (Permitted Parking Area and Special Parking Area) (Stirling Council) Designation Order 2017.
