£120 fines for petty things is excessive and councils can do it and there's no one to stop them. A central system that sets the fines across the country and processing the fines will be fairer and cheaper to adminster as you would have one centre rather than a dept doing it in every council.
Councils will be fining us for breathing the wrong way soon.
I understand the need as people will abuse parking etc without a deterent but there are so many fines and they are huge.
Fines to be set and collected centrally then redistributed to stop councils using it as an underhand revenue source.
