6.5 MILLION PRIVATE PARKING FINES TO BE ISSUED THIS YEAR
It has today been revealed that almost 6.5 million tickets could be handed to drivers by private parking firms. Amanda Stretton, motoring editor at Confused.com advises drivers how they can avoid the arduous costs of parking.
“Many drivers find parking signage, ticketing systems and stay durations confusing. It’s no wonder private parking firms are finding excuses to issue more and more fines to motorists.
“Drivers are being stung with ever-increasing motoring costs, from the cost of fuel being at a 12 month high, pricey car insurance premiums. The last thing they need is over-inflated parking fines.
“Our research shows the average driver will rack up almost £10,000 worth of parking charges and fines over a 25-year period - £6,952 of which is spent on car park fees alone.
“Those drivers who feel a parking ticket has been issued unfairly should challenge it and report any unclear parking signs to the local council to help other drivers in the future. Drivers should use our guide for all advice on how to appeal a parking fine.”
