More than 500,000 parking fines have been issued in the last four years in Liverpool a Freedom of Information request has revealed.
The Liverpool Echo report:
LIVERPOOL Council bosses have dished out more than half a million parking fines in the past four years.
Figures obtained by the ECHO show a dramatic rise in the number of fixed penalty notices issued for parking breaches since 2010.
Between 2009 and 2010, the number of tickets increased by 43% – from around 108,00 to just over 155,000, prompting claims from the opposition Liberal Democrats that the fines were being used as a “money spinner” for the cash-strapped council.
