Many vehicles being clamped are being done so by private land owners and residential car park owners.
The new law passed by the Home Office now states that anyone that clamps a vehicle must be licensed and follow the regulations now in place.
Signs that display warnings of being clamped will now have to meet certain visibility requirements.
For those that continue to clamp unjustifiably they may be taken to tribunal and asked to pay compensation, such as taxi fares whilst the individuals car was clamped.
Natasha Simper of Britannia Driving School said: “Drivers that feel they have been unduly clamped, will now be able to voice their concern and may be entitled to compensation.”
