London Councils have launched a public consultation on proposed increases in penalty charges for parking and moving traffic offences. Needless to say they think they should be increased but they don’t provide any evidence to support any change. Most such infringements take place accidentally and the charges are already high enough to deter misuse.
Parking penalty charges have increased rapidly in recent years as London boroughs have tried to maximise their income. The charges should be reduced not increased and there should be no additional penalty for appealing.
