Tax parking charges and speeding fines

Comment 3rd August 2010

Its strange that the previous government over- regulated everything – except parking charges and speeding fines which were completely unregulated. These make £114M for local authorities with parking fees and fines extimated over £2BN. I don't mind paying for NHS parking charges when my daughter was dying in hospital last year, but £5/ hour to park on street in London or an airport is a rip off. It's high time local authorities and BAA were taxed so this money comes back into the economy, not into bonuses!

Why does this matter?

It regulates money made by local authorities that is unregulated at present, and puts it on a level playing field with other charges. It also is easy to tax and cuts the deficitquicker which will save jobs?
