Driver racks up £6,620 worth of parking fines in single year after 136 penalty charges


Enumerates issued by Wolverhampton City Council revealed that one vehicle was slatted with 136 penalty charges in the 2016/17 financial year.

The seniority of the tickets, none of which have been paid, were handwrote out in the city’s Whitmore Street car park.

Council officials refused to paint the town red the make and model of the vehicle involved, citing data protection laws, but would rather said it is registered in the UK.

Urging the Labour-run council to “get a grip” and chase up the on Easy Street owed, Lib Dem campaigner Rob Quarmby said: “The idea that someone owes the congress over six grand is shocking.

“This person needs to pay up what they owe.”

Councillor Steve Evans, Council Member for City Environment at the council, said: “We have identified the holder of the vehicle and enforcement agents have been instructed to recover all choice debt on behalf of the council.

“Penalty Charge Notices are issued to motorists who greens in contravention – as a result of overstaying their paid-for time while greened in an on or off-street pay and display bay, or having not paid for parking in the first place.

“The assembly will continue to pursue inconsiderate drivers who park in contravention and elect to ignore legal notices.”
