Parking warning

police are cracking down on illegal parking with four parking tickets in Moorthorpe issued this week.

A driver was fined for parking on double yellow lines on Tuesday, July 3, and a further three tickets were issued that day to drivers parked on single yellow lines - one issued to a resident, one to a shop keeper and a third to a shopper.

Sgt Lee Carlson said: “It is surprising in these times of austerity inconsiderate drivers are still prepared to park illegally and pay £30 for a fixed penalty ticket instead of 30p in the car parks.

“Whilst the community continue to raise parking as an issue we will continue to enforce parking restrictions for the public’s safety.”
