The map shows Britain’s postcodes with the most fines for parking – with certain roads costing drivers more than £1million a year

CASH-hungry councilors hand out millions of pounds worth of parking fines every year.

But some cities are far worse than others.


A whopping £2.26million in fines were issued over a two-year period on one London street alone.

Mare Street in Hackney takes the crown for the UK’s most penalized, beating motorists by a staggering 32,347 – or 44 a day – by July 2022.

Closely followed by Clapham Park Road in Lambeth where 29,079 PCNs grossed £2.03m and the 28,762 on Millennium Way in Greenwich spending a total of £2.01m.

But outside the capital, watchmen cracked down on motorists in Belfast, Bradford, Leicester, Stoke, Edinburgh and Brighton & Hove.

Lisburn Road in the Northern Irish capital had 2,508 parking fines in the same period, while Bradford’s Kirkgate had 3,894.

In Brighton & Hove, Madeira Drive drivers were the worst offenders with 3,402 PCNs.

A total of 4,456 were issued at Quadrant Road in Stoke.

And drivers in Leicester were caught on the London Road the most with 4,865 yellow slips.

But nothing came close to George Street in Edinburgh, where a whopping 11,851 penalties were imposed.

The streets with the most fines in Manchester and Liverpool were Deansgate and Duke Street, but figures on the number of fines were not available.

The data was compiled by AppyParking+ with an average PCN cost of £70.

CEO and co-founder Dan Hubert said: “Parking has become an increasingly stressful and complicated process for drivers – they don’t know the best place to park, how long they can stay, and they are also being charged significant parking privilege fees placed .

“This has become a significant problem for drivers in London, with millions of pounds in fines being levied in certain areas every year, all at the expense of residents and visitors to the capital.

“We are all looking for ways to save vital cents amid the ongoing cost of living crisis and parking is an area where millions are wasted due to a lack of clarity and understanding of restrictions.

“It’s also about wasting time and fuel while they’re looking for places they know they can legally park – which means more emissions and more pollution on our roads because we don’t know where the right parking is.

“We wanted to highlight this issue and spark a positive conversation about how we can make parking a less stressful experience for everyone.”


How to dispute a parking ticket

  • Wait: not Pay your parking ticket right away if you want to dispute the charge – but make sure you know how long you have to dispute the ticket (usually this is no more than 28 days).
  • File an initial appeal: Contact the ticket issuer by phone, post or email and explain why you are refusing to pay. Include supporting evidence such as photos or evidence of a valid ticket.
  • Formal letter: Write another formal complaint letter if your ticket issuer has a complaints procedure in place. Some ticket issuers are affiliated with independent grievance systems that offer a free and impartial service.
  • Are they accredited?: If your ticket is issued by a private company, they must be a member of an accredited trade association for it to be enforceable. Check with the British Parking Association to see if they have the right to issue a ticket.
  • Can I decline?: If your appeal is rejected, you must pay for your parking ticket. Otherwise you could incur further costs. The map shows Britain’s postcodes with the most fines for parking – with certain roads costing drivers more than £1million a year
