The introduction of Decriminalised Parking Enforcement (DPE) in the Highlands has ment responsibility for enforcing parking, waiting and loading regulations has transferred from Police Scotland to The Highland Council. The Highland Council has also received powers to uplift vehicles.

Money raised through the issue of Penalty Charge Notices will only be spent on maintaining the service. Any surplus is controlled and can only be used for traffic related projects.

Police Scotland are still responsible for reportable traffic offences on all roads, such as dangerous parking or obstruction. Read Police Scotland duties after Decriminalisation
