Penalty charge notices are issued when drivers break parking regulations, such as by parking on double yellow lines or on a single yellow line at a prohibited time.

A spokesperson for the Local Government Association, which represent councils in England and Wales, said: “Income raised through on-street parking charges and parking fines is spent on running parking services.

"Any surplus is spent on essential transport projects, including fixing the £11billion road repairs backlog, reducing congestion, tackling poor air quality and supporting local bus services."
