Ker Farking Ching!

Loyal readers are very well aware that councils use parking fees and fines as an easy means to fill their ever empty coffers.

I am delighted to see that even Nanny's Road Safety Minister (Mike Penning) has now realised that. The Telegraph recently reported that councils in England and Wales saw their surplus from parking rise to £511.6M in 2010-11 from £489.4M in 2009-10 (as per an analysis of local authority accounts by the RAC Foundation).

This prompted Penning to warn them to stop treating motorists as an easy target to raise funds.

Whilst councils are prohibited from using fines to bolster their income, many get round the law by earmarking the cash raised for other transport projects.

Tory Westminster council made a £38 million profit from parking, whilst Brighton (oh I do love to be beside the seaside!) racked up a £12.7M.

    Surely you are not suggesting that coucils find a way around restrictions on their income sources, nah only bankers and other money grabbing capitalists would do that.
