What is the Traffic Penalty Tribunal (TPT)?

What is the NI Traffic Penalty Tribunal (NITPT)?


Under the new Traffic Management (NI) Order 2005, responsibility for the enforcement of illegal parking in NI has been transferred to TransportNI. Within TransportNI a Parking Enforcement Processing Unit (PEPU) has been established to collect parking fines, enforce non payment and to arbitrate on disputes from vehicle owners.

The NI Traffic Penalty Tribunal (NITPT)

NITPT is an independent tribunal established within the Northern Ireland Court Service to consider appeals against Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs) issued by or on behalf of the Roads Service.

The Tribunal is conducted by an Adjudicator, who is a qualified solicitor/barrister with at least 5 years' legal experience. The Adjudicator sits to consider the issues relevant to each appeal and will then give a decision based on all the available facts. The decision of the Adjudicator is binding on both the person who is appealing and on the Roads Service.
