Returning to your car to find a parking ticket is bad enough - discovering you've been clamped is even worse. Your rights if this happens depend on who fitted the clamp.
Which? Legal Service can provide advice on:
1. What the clamping laws and clamping regulations are in your area to help you know when you have the right to obtain a refund. For example, In Scotland, you shouldn't have a problem with clamping - the courts have ruled the practice is akin to extortion and have banned it altogether.
2. What your rights are if your car is clamped while on someone's private property.
3. Whether your car was clamped lawfully and if you should take legal action in a small claims court or criminal court.
