This is equivalent to about পা 200 per ticket – with increased fines for not paying immediately.

The fine – believed to be a UK record – was logged in north London by Islington Council, which said it would follow the driver for payment.

According to figures released by the council, they were the most expensive collection of fines for a single driver for violating traffic rules in the past year.

Wakefield Council in West Yorkshire has done the same with Ford Focus to settle the 13,609 debt from 121 tickets.

AA’s Jack Cousins ​​said: “This is clearly unacceptable behavior and will ultimately affect law-abiding drivers as councils seek to increase parking fees to cover these administrative costs.

“A driver who misses one or two tickets can reasonably argue that they were not aware of the charges, but these are evasions on an industry scale.”
