Number of parking tickets issued by car park management firms in Britain at record high



The number of parking tickets issued by car park management firms in Britain hit a record 5.65m last year, analysis of government driver data suggests.

 
The RAC Foundation says the number rose by almost a fifth in a year and was far above levels of a decade ago.


Motorists face charges of as much as £100 for contraventions such as overstaying, it said.


The government is backing a bill to introduce a new code of practice for the private parking industry.


The motoring research group said the number of tickets issued in the 2017-18 financial year rose from 4.71m - a year-on-year increase of nearly 20%. A decade ago 499,000 tickets were issued.
