County’s park­ing hotspots re­vealed

Llanelli Star - - LETTERS -

IF you want to avoid hav­ing a park­ing ticket stuck on your wind­screen in Car­marthen­shire, don’t over­stay your wel­come on Blue Street in Car­marthen or Llanelli’s Vaughan Street.

The town cen­tre streets were fer­tile ter­ri­tory for the coun­cil’s traf­fic war­dens, who is­sued a to­tal of 8,897 park­ing tick­ets in 2018-19.

The fig­ures fol­low a Free­dom of In­for­ma­tion re­quest.

Lam­mas Street in Car­marthen came third in the list of streets with the most park­ing tick­ets in the county.

The coun­cil was un­able to say how much rev­enue it re­ceived from car parks and how much it spent on them as th­ese fig­ures come un­der a wider park­ing ser­vices de­part­ment.

The most tick­ets is­sued by one of­fi­cer was 1,690, with two col­leagues dish­ing out 1,611 and 1,452 tick­ets re­spec­tively.

Next year’s fig­ures are likely to in­clude tick­ets from cam­era en­force­ment ve­hi­cles, which be­gan op­er­at­ing in Car­marthen­shire in April.
