Clamping at St Stephen’s Green in Dublin in 2020

This afternoon.

Via RTÉ News:

Clamping fines in Dublin city are to increase from €80 to €125 next week.

The 56% rise comes into effect on 1 March following a decision by Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan.

Green Party Councillor for Dublin’s North Inner City, Janet Horner, said the increase was needed to discourage car use in the city centre.

The Automobile Association said the rise was coming at a bad time for motorists who are already experiencing a “perfect storm” when it comes to rising costs of running a car.

Name that jammer, anyone?

Mespil Road, Dublin 4 – the worst place for clamping in Dublin

You park there.

You Mespil with the best.

But the clamping calamity seems to happen all too often, especially on Mespil Road, Dublin – named in the report as the worst place for clamping in the city as 416 cars were clamped there between January and June.

Ranelagh isn’t far behind either, a new addition to the list. In the first half of this year, 320 cars have been clamped compared to just 35 during the same period last year. According to the report, the increase in clamping in the area was due to people parking on a clearway.
