18,000 parking fines issued by trust26th May 2011
Consumer group Which? has revealed that more than 18,600 parking penalties were issued by three hospitals during 2010.
Research revealed that the University Hospitals Birmingham trust - which runs the hospitals - issued 18,651 fines in the 12-month period, the equivalent of 51 per day. Leeds Teaching Hospitals, the second-worst offender, handed out 9,008 tickets. Parking charges were scrapped in Scotland three years ago and will end in Wales this year but plans for a similar move in England have been overturned by the coalition government.
