Medway Council vows to track down driver with £20,000 in parking fines

Medway Council says it will continue to pursue a motorist who owes the authority more than £20,000 in parking fines.

The Sun identified a vehicle owner who has avoided paying 293 parking tickets, totalling £20,210 – the fourth biggest unsettled bill to a local authority in the country.

As the vehicle is registered abroad, a foreign bailiff company has been commissioned by the council in a bid to retrieve the owed sum.

The driver has so far avoided paying £20,000 in parking fines

Ruth Du-Lieu, assistant director of frontline services, said: “It is very frustrating but we are doing everything we can, and we will continue to pursue this in every way that we can.

“Our civil enforcement officers regularly patrol across Medway and will issue penalty charge notices to any vehicles found to be parking illegally.

“If a penalty charge notice is not paid, the matter is referred to our bailiffs, who will pursue any outstanding debts owed to the council.”

The worst offender, having refused to pay 264 parking tickets, owes Westminster City Council £31,580.
