Pewfall's LINK is from 1980.

If you took the time to view MY LINK, you'd find it more up-to-date, is from Parliamentary Archives and came into force some 28years after Pewfall's "de facto" contribution.

Itsays, "Since 1995 local authorities in England have had the ability to assume control for parking enforcement in their areas from the police.
Almost all local authorities have now assumed
these powers.
This means that parking offences on the public highway are not dealt with by the police and the courts but by the civil authorities – the local authority and an independent traffic tribunal which hears appeals.
The law on civil parking enforcement was revised and consolidated in 2004, and the current arrangements came into force in 2008."

And THAT is why the police don't issue parking tickets!
