A thou­sand tick­ets is­sued

The Wokingham Paper - - NEWS -

The first month of park­ing en­force­ment has seen the bor­ough coun­cil’s war­dens is­sue more than 1,000 tick­ets.

Cllr Chris Bowring, ex­ec­u­tive mem­ber for high­ways and trans­port said: “Since Oc­to­ber 9 we’ve is­sued 1,021 con­tra­ven­tion tick­ets and warn­ings. They cover a range of con­tra­ven­tions, but a sig­nif­i­cant num­ber re­late to over­stay­ing in lim­ited wait­ing ar­eas and park­ing on dou­ble yel­low lines.

“Although CPE has been suc­cess­ful crack­ing down on il­le­gally parked cars, other ar­eas we’re fo­cus­ing on in­clude dis­abled bays and park­ing in load­ing bays.

“Park­ing around schools needs con­stant at­ten­tion, so we also aim to have vis­i­ble pa­trols around them and not fo­cus solely on tick­et­ing.”
