A hotline has been set up for people to report parking problems to Medway Council.
From this week, residents will be able to contact the enforcement team directly between 7am and 1am.
The team can deal with a range of issues including vehicles parked next to a dropped kerb, stopped in a restricted area outside schools or parked in a disabled bay without a blue badge.

Officers already carry out regular checks but it is hoped the hotline will help them to target places with the worst parking problems.
Cllr Phil Filmer, portfolio holder for frontline services, said: “It is fantastic motorists will be able to contact the parking enforcement team directly on the phone or by email.
“The new hotline will make parking enforcement even more responsive and will help to keep Medway moving.

“Illegally parked vehicles can put people’s lives at risk, especially if parked outside schools.
“I would encourage all motorists to park responsibly and to call the hotline to report illegally parked vehicles.”
The number for the hotline is 07718 130962 and should be answered between 7am and 1am seven days a week.
A voicemail service will be available outside of these hours.
Motorists can also email email@example.com to report any issues.
