John O’Dowd, the Infrastructure Minister, releasing the information said it was not possible to detail the total number of PCNs issued to vehicles parked on a footway (pavement) as parking restrictions marked on the road, for example yellow lines, also apply to the footway or verge, and the actual location of the vehicle is not recorded.
