The government is looking at banning councils in England from using CCTV cameras and "spy cars" to catch people parking illegally.
In East Anglia, Bedfordshire and Peterborough councils both use vehicles with a CCTV camera on the roof which drives around enforcing parking restrictions.
The council's say it's an effective tool to punish those parking illegally but Eric Pickles the local government secretary said cameras are fine for catching criminals but shouldn't be used as a way of making money from motorists.
