RANK BEHAVIOUR: Birmingham City Council recorded 3,383 PCNs issued for vehicles parked on taxi ranks in 2023

Birmingham City Council recorded that around 3,380 Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs) were issued to vehicles illegally parked in taxi ranks in 2023.

In a recent statement made via social media, a spokesperson for the Birmingham City Council Licensing department disclosed the number of PCNs issued to drivers for illegally parking in Hackney Carriage Ranks. The city saw 486 PCNs issued in December 2023.

The December figures contributed to a mind blowing annual total, bringing the count for the year to ‘almost’ 3,383 instances of illegal parking in designated taxi areas. This number underscores a growing concern around taxi rank parking regulations in Birmingham.

The spokesperson also noted that Thorp Street regained its position as the top location for these parking infractions, following a brief period where it had seen a decrease in such incidents.

A Birmingham City Council Licensing spokesperson said: “486 PCN's were issued to drivers in December for illegally parking in a Hackney Carriage Rank.

“This takes the total for the year to almost 3,383!

“Thorp Street back on top stop spot following a month off.”
