10,000 parking tickets issued a day

An investigation by The Sun has discovered that over the 2011 – 2012 financial year councils have raked in nearly £3 billion in parking fines

The biggest earner in the list was the London borough of Westminster which pulled in nearly £80 million; the next 6 councils in the list are also in London.

When interviewed by The Sun, Communities Minister Brandon Lewis said that councils should be using parking to support the local high street rather than deterring people away.
