Traffic wardens have gone mobile under new guidelines issued by Spelthorne Council.
The wardens have been given scooters to zig zag in and out of traffic, and the council say this will help traffic flow across the borough, as they can deal more effectively with illegal and obstructive parking issues.
Councillor Gerry Forsbrey, cabinet member for the environment, said: "The introduction of scooters is a good move. They are environmentally friendly and allow parking wardens to respond quickly and cover more ground.
"This will all help traffic moving in Spelthorne and also ensure that potentially dangerous and illegal parking practices are nipped in the bud."
