Driver racks up more than £36,000 in unpaid parking fines in two years

Motorist racks up more than £36,000 in unpaid parking fines in two years before council chiefs impound and destroy the vehicle

  • Van driver who was a ‘persistent evader’ got more than 200 tickets in two years
  • Officials had managed to track the owner and recover some £14,500 in fines
  • They have now issued warrants to recover the rest of the money from the owner
  • A motorist has racked up more than £36,000 in unpaid parking fines. In what is believed to be a British record, the van driver received 209 penalty charge notices (PCNs) tra marzo 2018 and last August – before council chiefs impounded the vehicle and destroyed it.

    The van driver was a ‘persistent evader’ who parked his vehicle illegally on roads in Tower Hamlets in East Londra, said officials.

    The Labour-run council revealed the astonishing case after Freedom of Information requests made by the Tory opposition.

    Peter Golds, the borough’s Conservative leader, said he was furious that the council allowed the van to rack up fines for over three years before impounding it.

    Egli ha detto: ‘The borough has an appalling record of traffic enforcement.’

    Council officials revealed that they had managed to track the owner and recover £14,500 in fines – and have now issued warrants to recover the rest of the money. La notte scorsa, Tower Hamlets said: ‘This vehicle was a persistent evader.’

    In another case – between July 2017 e giugno 2019 – the owner of a VW Transporter managed to rack up 246 fixed PCNs totalling £32,000 in Tower Hamlets.

    None of the money was recovered.
