She has been instrumental in driving the commitment to provide a user-focussed tribunal, recently introducing telephone and video conference hearings. She is a champion of the use of technology for the tribunal case management and takes a leading role in developing the new award winning TPT on-line appeal system.

She began her legal career as a barrister and worked for some years in the London Magistrates’ Courts, in particular overseeing London’s Fixed Penalty Office and Central Processing Unit for the enforcement of parking fines.

Caroline regularly speaks at conferences about tribunal initiatives as well parking and traffic law as well as giving interviews to promote awareness of the appeals process.  She was elected as a member of the Council of Justice, the all-party law reform and human rights organisation in 2016.

Caroline was awarded an OBE in the summer of 2017 for services to motorists, having received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the parking industry earlier in the year.
