Give Nanny an inch, and she will take a mile.
Such was the case for Andrew Wilson, a window cleaner from Lincol, who recently had the misfortune of parking his van in his own driveway in such a manner that one inch of it overhung the yellow lines of his street.
Needless to say a traffic warden duly appeared and presented him with a £70 fine.
The van was parked near the end of the driveway because of building work going on at a neighbour's property.
Mr Wilson is quoted by the Mail of accusing Lincolnshire County Council of 'milking people of every penny':
"It's a £70 fine but if you pay it in 14 days then it's £35.The council will investigate and cancel the ticket, if they find it has been issued in error.
I'm not going to pay it.
I've appealed against it and sent the photos I took.
I have been living here for three and a half years and the yellow lines have always been there but I've never had a problem.
'After 6pm you don't need a permit so the traffic wardens are always down there at like 5.30pm trying to catch people out. I've seen them scraping the ice off trying to look for permits.
'It is just stupid. It is milking us for every penny we have. It is disgusting."
