Aberdeen streets generate £2.4m from parking tickets

Aberdeen City Council has raised £2.4 million from parking tickets from just five streets in the last year, new figures have revealed.

The data shows income for the council is up by £1 million when compared to the previous year.

Palmerston Road was revealed to be the street where the most parking tickets have been issued in 2014, perhaps due to its close proximity to a local shopping centre.

Finance convener Willie Young told the Press and Journal that all of the money raised from parking tickets is spent by the city council on road improvements and public transport strategies.

He said: "We would rather nobody received a parking ticket as this would mean that all drivers were complying to the rules on parking. However, it is self evident from the fines that more and more people are flouting the law and paying the penalty."

City centre streets Golden Square, Marischal Street and Stirling Street were also listed in the top five places for parking tickets in Aberdeen this year, along with Cornhill Road, which is close to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

Total revenue for parking tickets for the five streets was shown to be £2,489,344.21 for the past year, a large increase from £1,414,704.50 the previous year.
