Motorists are being hit for nearly £3million a day in parking fines from number plate-scanning cameras, a study shows.

In only two years, the number of planning applications to install ANPR (automatic number plate recognition) systems in private car parks has increased by 61 per cent – triggering a sharp rise in fines.

More than ten million motorists a year are served with fines generated by the cameras which are increasingly used to control privately operated hospital and supermarket car parks, the research by Churchill Car Insurance says.

Classic Car Battery Care

  Classic Car Battery Care Classic car battery care is easy to do — Acid corroded classic car battery terminals can prevent an engine from starting and discharge the battery.There are two basic types of classic car owners: Those that don't drive their classic car, and those that run the wheels off racking up as many miles as possible.

ANPR devices are controversial because, in some cases, drivers have been fined despite not breaking any rules.

Drivers can be fined if they overstay the time limit or if they use the same car park more than once in a day. But in some cases, penalties have been issued to innocent drivers – including almost two million given out as a result of a faulty camera.

According to the survey of 2,000 motorists, as many as one in eight appeals against ANPR-generated fines are now successful.

Although the official limit on major roads remains at 70, drivers caught exceeding it by as much as Highway patrol: Motorists will be able to do up to 86mph but still escape fines and penalty points Until now, speeding drivers have been given the option of attending courses up to certain limits, but

Drivers paid fees adding up to £1.07billion a year, with the average cost of a fine standing at £68.90. This is the equivalent of £2.9million in fines issued every day, or £2,035 every minute.

Overstaying the allotted time-slot was the most common reason for getting fined, affecting 3.4million drivers – which is 23 per cent of those who were issued fines.

This was followed by 2.4million (16 per cent) who did not realise they had to pay and 1.7million (12 per cent) who said that they received the fine because of a faulty camera.

In August, the Government announced plans for a crackdown on parking 'cowboys' that use aggressive tactics.

The proposed rules aim to tackle predatory firms that use aggressive or pseudo-legal language to intimidate motorists into paying fines.

They will also force firms to clearly display pricing and the terms and conditions of parking and how to appeal against a charge.

The initiative proposes a tiered approach to fines with a cap for less serious offences of between £40 and £80 – the current cap is £100.

But drivers who wrongly park in disabled spaces or ambulance bays would face an increased fine of £120.

The system would be mandatory, unlike existing voluntary ones set by the industry.

It is being put out for public consultation, which will run until the middle of the month.
