"Trust Jersey Not To Act When Something Is Unlawful!!!"

No clamp down on clampers

Despite a resounding States decision two years ago to make wheel clamping illegal in Jersey, islanders' vehicles are still getting clamped on private land.

The Home Affairs Department is yet to draft a law to formally ban the practice, so for now clamping remains a legal grey area.

Home Affairs Minister Senator Ian Le Marquand says it is still unlawful but no work to change the system will take place until 2013 at the earliest.

Senator Le Marquand supports the introduction of a code of practice to allow for the issuing of notices to penalise unauthorised parking on private land.

Jersey is now lagging behind the rest of Britain. It was banned in Scotland two decades ago and action is now being taken in the UK to make it illegal.
