Comment of the Day – Motorists stung by £328m parking fines

Based on a report from the TaxPayers’ Alliance it has been reported today that, “Drivers had to fork out £328MILLION in parking fines over the last year, figures reveal today.

Posh Kensington and Chelsea Council in London raised the most per resident – taking the equivalent of £85.29 for every man, woman and child. Nearby Westminster nabbed the highest total – £35.4MILLION or £62.46 a head in the last financial year. But drivers were not just clobbered in London – King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Council trousered £3.5million, or £37.64 a head.” Read in full at The Sun.
