Clamping Of Vehicles Belonging To Medical Staff

Statement On Clamping Of Vehicles Belonging To Medical Staff. 

Dublin City Council has already instructed Dublin Street Parking Services, DCCs parking enforcement contractor, to exercise discretion in terms of clamping cars parked on roads and streets surrounding hospitals, the department of health, and HSE offices.

We are endeavouring to put in place a more formal identification procedure for vehicles belonging to medical professionals and staff associated with medical facilities, to ensure that we can prioritise spaces around these locations for the medical staff. 

Normal clamping and enforcement activities are still ongoing and will remain in place to ensure that motorists continue to park legally and that vehicles obstructing entrances, disabled bays etc. can be removed.  In the circumstances we would urge all other drivers not to park in the vicinity of medical facilities and to leave these spaces free for medical professionals.

Medical professionals and staff working in the Covid-19 test centre at Croke Park are advised that they can park inside the stadium. Parking at other testing locations will be addressed on a case by case basis.

Dublin City Council doesn’t run any hospital car parks, they are run by private companies.

Medical professionals throughout the city are doing a wonderful job and we will always support them any way we can.
