Off-street car parks are generally managed by the relevant district or city council and you should contact them directly if you have any questions. 

On-street parking - such as pay and display bays and double yellow lines - are enforced by Cambridgeshire Police. In Cambridge City, civil enforcement officers can also issue penalty charge notices. 

You can report anyone parking illegally in the city on 01223 727 900. 

There are sometimes parking problems that civil parking enforcement cannot enforce. These are more serious offences where penalty points can be given to drivers, such as obstruction where there are no yellow lines, parking on zig zags by schools, or in bus lanes and cycle lanes. These offences can only be enforced by the police.
