(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations prescribe functions during the exercise of which, a parking attendant must wear a uniform.
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) (City of Edinburgh) Designation Order 1998 (S.I. 1998/1539) 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 area are required to wear a uniform when doing so. The uniform may be determined by the Secretary of State.
1984 c. 27; section 63A was inserted by section 44 of the Road Traffic Act 1991 (c. 40) and was modified in relation to the Edinburgh Parking Area by S.I. 1998/1539. “Prescribed” is defined in section 142(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 which section was modified by S.I. 1998/1539.
