The dastardly case of the Surbiton Crescent fine trap

posted 7 Jan 2017, 06:35 by Peter Webb

Politicians haven't said so yet but having milked the taxpayer dry and borrowed to make up current spending, "cuts" must extend to central grants. This means that local authorities have to do more with less. It is now deliberate local policy to increase  "other income". There is the question of fines which are avoidable unless, for example. you are caught in the Surbiton Crescent trap.To avoid that you need to know of it, can read the signs and notices or are an accomplished twittering pensioner. 8,055 penalty notices were issued to yield  in one week in November more than £500k in fines. As if one enjoys seeking out fines to pay. This was fully reported in the local press.
