Wallets on wheels

Multiple Penalty Charge Notices (PCN) on a car

Have we become a nation of wallets on wheels? According to the latest Government figures, English councils have made £454 million from on-street parking penalties during the 2018-19 financial year, which is up by 6% from the previous year.

The RAC has also revealed that London councils are making the most profits.

Westminster Council was by far and away the most profitable making just under £70 million. Followed by Kensington and Chelsea with £37 million and Wandsworth on £26 million.
