    every illegally parked car will be clamped

    Hello,

    These are the lines from a student's email:
    'Every illegally parkeding car will be clamped.'
    The task is to write an email to the whole staff about new parking rules.

    Is it possible change it this way?

    'Every car owner parking their cars in the wrong spaces will be fined.'

    Thank you in advance.

    Not at all possible, I'm afraid.

    The clamping of vehicles is a fact, according to the clampers.

    Whether the car owners will eventually be fined is subject to numerous uncertainties. It is, as we say in AmE. a whole nother question.
