PEOPLE who park their cars illegally sure are swelling the coffers of Kirklees Council.
We reveal today that wayward motorists have paid £724,400 in fines to the council over the last financial year alone. And we have also revealed which are the most lucrative roads for the parking attendants.
With such high sums rolling into the council, the message seems quite clear that if you park illegally there is now a strong chance you’ll return to your vehicle to find a parking enforcement notice slapped on it.
There are many things you can do wrong as a driver to end up being fined.
But are the attendants being too petty at times and are the signs clear enough?
Perhaps many people are being caught through ignorance rather than blatantly flouting the regulations.
Whatever the reason, as the budget cuts continue to bite you may find it harder to get the council to overturn your fine.
So beware in future. You have been warned.
