London, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/05/2010 -- 24 7 parking, experts in finding affordable long term parking in London and around the UK, comment today on the news that Yorkshire council is owed millions of pounds in unpaid parking tickets.
Statistics show that over 400,000 parking tickets were issued in Yorkshire alone last year, which equates to one for every five motorists, and generated over £10 million in revenue for the 08/09 financial year. However, there is still a backlog of fines that remain unpaid, meaning councils all over the country are still owed millions of pounds from unpaid fines - Leeds City Council alone is owed £5.4 million in unpaid tickets.
The Leeds figure is, perhaps, a little unsurprising considering that Leeds City Council issues the most parking tickets in the region. A third of Yorkshire's tickets were handed out by the Leeds' wardens, with Clarendon Road in the Woodhouse area being named as the largest hotspot in Yorkshire for tickets being issued.
"That Leeds is the chief offender in Yorkshire when it comes to the amount of parking fines being issued is hardly a surprise. After all, it is one of the busiest areas in the country and finding parking in Leeds can be extremely difficult sometimes," said Peter Cooper of 24 7 Parking. "Our parking reach, luckily for customers trying to find affordable parking in Leeds, has now extended to the Yorkshire area.
