"A blanket ban on the use of CCTV is not the way to tackle the Government's concerns around parking. Instead, councils, charities, motoring and pedestrian groups and road safety campaigners want to constructively work with government to reshape parking policy for the better and without jeopardising the safety of our children and vulnerable people."
Rupert Lipton, managing director of campaign group National Motorists Action Group, and a lawyer at Briefcase Law, says: "Motorists are often ripped off by confidence tricksters. Councils and private parking firms are happy to slap motorists with penalty notices and charges knowing full well that most pay up as it seems too much bother to fight. It really is a dirty game."
