Motorist pays parking fine - with 29 cheques!
7:58am Tuesday 28th February 2012 in News
A Southampton motorist who was caught illegally parked in a disabled bay sent in 29 cheques to pay the fine.
The driver was handed a parking ticket after being caught by car park officials at Bournemouth’s Castlepoint shopping complex.
The female driver of the Volvo car settled the fine by sending in cheques worth £1 and £2, but because she paid up within 10 days the £100 fine was reduced to £60.
Castlepoint manager Peter Matthews said he could see the funny side.
He said: “In one sense it’s quite funny and in another sense she is making a point.
“But by parking in a disabled bay without a blue badge, her point about the way she thinks she can behave has already been made.”
The Volvo, registration number T819 JPP, is registered to a Southampton address and was ticketed at 11.45am on February 15.
