Are traffic wardens working during lockdown?

Yes, traffic wardens are still working in London, as they are throughout most of the UK.

The wardens are employed by local councils and are responsible for ensuring parking regulations are being followed.

However, as a result of the lockdown, some councils have relaxed the regulations while others have suspended parking enforcement altogether.

One of those to do away with their enforcements is Haringey Council.

A statement released last month read: "Haringey Council has made adjustments to parking enforcement to support essential NHS and police staff, as well as residents that have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The British Parking Association (BPA) told "Across the country, people may find that some car parks have been closed, some will be free and others only free to NHS or healthcare workers.

"BPA advises that motorists check signage or the local council’s website for up-to-date information."
