£1.2m parking fines in ONE street, London will be London!
DRIVERS were hit by £1.2million in parking fines in a SINGLE street last year, The Sun can reveal.
The road in the borough of Camden saw 19,335 tickets issued to net authorities £1,198,870. It headed a list of ten roads in the capital which between them hauled in £6.7million from penalties in 2011.
The second-worst fines blackspot was Bounds Green Road in Haringey, North London, where 14,000 drivers were hit for £1,1,002,360.
Third, came Clapham Park Road in Clapham, South West London, which raked in £875,658 in fines from 14,442 motorists.
Outside the capital, wardens hit 5,000 drivers in the High Street of Slough, Berks, for £270,506.
Roads in Birmingham, Brighton, Liverpool, and Leeds were also revealed as being among those which brought councils across the UK a total of £1.3billion last year.
Slamming the figures, which were disclosed under Freedom of Information rules, the AA called them a “parking penalty pot of gold”.
A spokesman said some drivers took chances by stopping briefly on busy restricted streets but others were misled by poor signs or “lack of a visible deterrent”.
He added: “With councils’ budgets being cut they’re only too glad to tap into this.
